A Jazz Makeover

It's day 4 of my blues writing challenge, and after writing three pieces in 4/4, trying a different time signature seemed appropriate.  I decided to give a makeover to "All Blues", by Miles Davis.  I changed the key, but kept his basic harmonic progression intact.  I modified the bass line ever so slightly and then applied some inverted fourths voicings to give it an updated, modern sound.  After recording several choruses of myself improvising over the vamp, I found this melody.  I call it "Bottom Feeders".
