About 10 days ago, I posted the Blues Rumba in Bb Solo. Today I posted the 10 minute long jam track. Enjoy this summer-vibin’ track in the key of Bb!
About this jam track
This Blues Rumba track is loosely inspired by a great rumba blues track like Crosscut Saw (check out great versions of it by Matt Schofield and/or Josh Smith). Although most of these renditions use the key of G (which I like a lot), I opted for the key of Bb as this is a key I haven’t used much on my channel. Also, this key is ideally suited for horn players that want to practice their blues rumba chops.
The track has three levels of intensity. Level 1 is the basic, mellow rumba. Level 2 adds a bit of action on the toms, clave, and a Hammond B3 organ. Level 3 brings on the full blues rumba intensity with frequent fills on toms, a blaring B3 Hammond, a powerful ride cymbal, and – wait for it – the almighty cowbell. Enjoy this Blues Rumba in Bb.
For the first time, I added a suggested scale in the video (the Bb minor blues scale). On the top right of your screen, you can find an overview of the 12-bar blues that this Blues rumba track follows. Let me know what you think!
