“In the Dark All Cats Are Blue” is a jazzy moderately slow blues. I wrote part A long, long ago as an accompaniment to a standard blues song but it took me a few decades to realise it was strong enough to stand on its own as a solo piece. Then it was just had to add a simple matching second part.
There are three minor technical challenges here: damping, synchronizing the chords with the bass and getting all the notes in the glissandos clean and clear. Part B is supposed to be a free solo part. You can of course play it as written but don’t hesitate to improvise your own solo if you like.
I’ve dedicated the piece to Ole Martin Thomassen, a very fine jazz guitarist who teaches at the same school as me.
