Written as a TV theme for Kensington Market’s mythical private eye, the Blue Chameleon, this tune has a slinky secret agent sound to it. The dark, back alley feel of the song is driven by sultry horns and a propulsive bass line. Kelly Jefferson’s sax solo twists and turns through the darkened streets, Jim Vivian takes us into a crowded bar with an angular bass solo and the theme comes back as the credits roll after another crime is solved by the Blue Chameleon. Or its it? Tune in next week as the series continues.
