A melodious and jazzy little modern shuffle tune written for a young, developing ensemble, this chart is well-suited for middle school jazz bands and/or a young high school group.
Scored for Trumpets 1, 2, 3, Flute, Clarinet, Alto Sax 1 & 2, Tenor Sax 1 & 2, Baritone Sax, Trombones 1 & 2, Piano, Bass, Drums, Guitar.
The shuffle feel gives this tune a sophisticated and modern sound. Once your players get to know the interplay of the lines they will dig in and have a great time.
The chart can open up for solos (as many as you need or want: trumpet, alto, tenor, piano, guitar) - while there's no "written" solos (chord changes only), players can listen to the recorded solos to get some ideas for an approach to soloing over the chord changes, which move along pretty easy.
