Slam

“Slam” is a fun blues by Jim Hall.  On his live record Grand Slam each band member takes a turn ad libbing over the gaps while the others hold down the melody.  Lewis Nash starts the tune, George Mraz takes the second pass, Jim the third, and Joe Lovano carries his chorus into a swinging solo.
