Oscar Peterson – C Jam Blues (transcription sheet music)
Oscar Peterson – C Jam Blues (sheet music transcription)
As the title suggests, the piece follows a twelve-bar blues form in the key of C major. The tune is well known for being extremely easy to play, with the entire melody featuring only two notes: G and C.
A performance typically features several improvised solos. The melody likely originated from the clarinetist Barney Bigard in 1941, but its origin is not perfectly clear.
It was also known as “Duke’s Place“, with lyrics added by Bill Katts, Bob Thiele and Ruth Roberts.
