Mellow is a great example of how Elton blends
New Orleans with gospel. The result just oozes with the kind
of southern style that seems impossible for someone from
England to have. Elton references Leon Russell as an influence,
and I suspect this is one example of Leon's influence.
I've received several requests for this song, especially
the intro. Frankly, the published intro isn't too bad, however
the rest of the song is a real humdinger and the sheet music
is a real let down. Be sure and include that light swing
feel to the song when you play it.
Unfortunately, this first page is all I can provide for
