Trumpet: F6, Trombone: Ab4
The alto saxophones share the spotlight in this in-the-pocket medium blues, starting with a unison stop-time melody. The blowing begins with an ensemble send-off, and each alto gets several choruses to stretch out, leading to choruses of 4s and an "a capella" chorus soloing together, topped off with a traditional big-band ensemble shout. Arranged by Scott Whitfield for Sherrie Maricle & The DIVA Jazz Orchestra, recorded on Live In Concert.
This publication is dedicated to the memory and magic of Stanley Kay, the founder and creative force behind The DIVA Jazz Orchestra, FIVE PLAY and The DIVA Jazz Trio. May his music make you swing hard and smile.
Standard Big Band (5/4/4/4)
