Blue Bossa Jazz Tutorial & Free Backing Track

"Blue Bossa" is an instrumental jazz composition by Kenny Dorham. - Wikipedia

This was one of my first jazz tunes I learned and after so much time I still find it intriguing and the harmonies very inspiring for improvisation. That's why I decided to make a backing track, more for the beginner level, not very fast, so the less advanced can play on those nice harmonies and the more advanced can play "on the double" :))
