Chord changes for Randy Weston's mischievious sounding Berkshire Blues. The tune has an unusual form to be called a blues (24 bars in 3/4 time) but imaginatively uses blues harmonic devices. Jazz singer Betty Carter later wrote lyrics for this, retitling her version "Ego" ("Your ego got in the way")
