“Blue In Green” is a ballad allegedly written by Miles Davis for his famous hit record “Kind of Blue”. Though Miles has been given credit for the tune, it has long been speculated that pianist Bill Evans actually wrote the tune.

Blue in Green has an irregular 10 bar form with a coda ending repeating the first three chords of the tune.
