Additional Info

The recording of Groove Blues for you to listen to is by the Louis Bellson Octet as a Big Band version of this tune was never recorded. However, this recording is very similar to the big band version, although not exactly the same. The recording will give a very good idea of the style of the music, the tempo, and the articulation. Plus, you’ll be able to listen to outstanding soloists! A great chart to play! A 4-line score (not a full score) is included which has Alto 1, Trumpet 1, Trombone 1, and the changes in the rhythm section. Many composers/arrangers in past years didn’t write full scores, they wrote out the parts from memory.

An Optional Soprano/Clarinet part.
