The Applebaum Jazz Piano Duo: Blues Out, Blues In

Together with my father, Bob Applebaum, I play in The Applebaum Jazz Piano Duo. We recently dug up an old tune that I co-wrote with Hiroko Kuroiwa in 1989. It is a peculiar tune, its changes at once very familiar and very alien. It is in fact a 12-bar blues, but a really weird one. We’ve been trying to learn how to improvise over it recently, so I thought I’d include this recording as an example of our playing.
