Holmes is a New Orleans second-line blues in the key of Eb. The tuba (can be bass trombone) sets down thew bass line for the first half of the chart. Solo changes are for Alto, Tenor, Trumpet, and Trombone, leading up to a thrilling shout section. After the shout, the chart romps to the end. The band will enjoy this chart’s contagious enthusiasm.
