Not really blues, it's inspired by Charlie Parker so more jazz.

  I hope this isn't representative of the album.

It was left over from DTRW.

Maybe Precious Voice From Heaven.

This is a Jazz song to me, very like the style he did with Chris Barber, this has good use of the horns.
Please check out my MK/DS forum:

Knopfler, Oldfield and Gilmour is all the guitar I need.

But jazz is just graduated blues, innit? The breaks and chord structure are definitely blues, with a little touch of jazz. More like Jazz-Blues, a mixture.

"Slow Learner" is more like pure jazz. Probably the closest to real jazz Mark ever got. Usually, he prefers to either bluesify everything, folkify everything, or countrify.

I would say it is just jazz-flavoured, just to add to the story
