Brood of Vipers

Today I have written a modal blues using John Coltrane's "Pursuance" as a model.  "Pursuance" is the 3rd part of Coltrane's A Love Supreme Suite.

Ironically, today is my mother's birthday, and I think it is safe to say that she despises the music of John Coltrane.  As a teenager I used to joke that she would do well in DownBeat magazine's blindfold test.  Clearly she could recognize his sound, because every time I played a Coltrane record she'd complain and say "That music is driving me crazy. Can't you switch it to something else?!"

Happy Birthday Mom.
