Good Bye Blues is not to be confused with the Miller Brothers' song hit written by Jimmy McHugh in 1932. This particular blues fox-trot is a very entertaining composition having the form of AABBACC with a 4-bar introduction and a 16-bar interlude preceding the final C-strain. The AB- and C-strains are written in the major keys of C and F respectively. The A-strain particularly catches this editor's ears being characterised by chromatic runs elaborated by notes inégales. The whole is a real fun piece which the treble voice will especially enjoy having long passages to demonstrate his or her virtuosity.
