Bella's Blues

From Plank Road Publishing

by Paul Jennings

Who is Bella? Well, for the sake of this song, we're not entirely sure. What we do know is that Bella is a bit spooky, and Bella has the blues. The tune itself is a big band blues with a bit more fun thrown in. It starts and ends with an orchestral nod to J. S. Bach's "Toccata," though it's just a hint to lead us into an A minor blues in two choruses. There are two recorder parts that work separately or together, one featuring G, A, B, and C, while the other features just A and C, a real bonus for teachers who like to start with these two notes. (from Music K-8, Vol. 24, No. 1)
