Information on the Blues scale class discussion on 9/22/13
In particular, no specific African musical form can be identified as the single direct ancestor of the blues.[53] However many blues elements, such as the call-and-response format and the use of blue notes, can be traced back to the music of Africa. That blue notes pre-date their use in blues and have an African origin is attested by English composer Samuel Coleridge-Taylor's "A Negro Love Song", from his The African Suite for Piano composed in 1898, which contains blue third and seventh notes.[54]
