Description "Pentacoastal Blues" was written in 2009 by Tim Sullivan. This is a unique blues as it has only 11 bars...not 12 !! Not the usual blues changes. Lead sheet. New Orleans latin style. The composer writes: This deceptively hip 11 bar blues dances the line between a New Orleans second line groove, the vocal quality of a Charles Mingus-inspired Pentecostal church service, and an exercise in pentatonic scales. While the listener is invited to dance along to what may feel like a straight ahead blues, soloists are afforded numerous possibilities as to how they approach navigating the harmonic changes.
