Down and Out is a mellow, laid back blues chart. It uses the traditional 12 bar blues changes and the standard AAB form for the melody. After a strong opening, the piece moves into the main melody, introducing it by using the style of Miles Davis' "So What." Once the head has been set, the chart then begins to build towards the solo section, through the use of a shout chorus and some stop time figures.
