Chord progression for Jimmy Rowles' 502 Blues (Drinkin' And Drivin'). Wayne Shorter played this on his Adam's Apple album on Blue Note Records. Rowles through most of his career served as an accompanist for jazz singers. He had long associations with Billie Holiday and Carmen McCrae. This tune and The Peacocks are the two Rowles compositions that I know about. They are both astoundingly fine work. Does anyone know of any others?
