Basie Blues Changes
As the Blues form evolved during the Swing Era, the V-IV-I cadence in bars 9 through 12 was replaced by the ii-V-I Jazz Progression. The Count Basie Orchestra played many blues-oriented compositions during this time period. This progression was used in tunes such as their popular One O'Clock Jump
