Down-home and bluesy, slow and greasy! This outstanding chart blends a New Orleans-style slow swing and contemporary harmonies. The best of both worlds comes alive within the creative mind of arranger Tom Davis. Your young band students will love this arrangement so much that they won't want to stop playing. Lots of unison, easy brass range (trumpet to F and trombone to E-flat), alto and tenor sax written solos with band backgrounds, and simple rhythms will all give you a quality musical product with minimum rehearsal time. Very effective chart for festivals and concerts!
"This chart gives the New Orleans classic a funk treatment. The piece starts with a great introduction, and a vamp based on the melody follows each chorus. Written solos for the tenor sax and trumpet are in D minor and use some nice stylistic elements."
