Description

As the title suggests, this chart is a joyful, gospel-tinged jazz waltz in the mold of Mingus's "Better Get Hit In Your Soul." The solo section is very flexible, allowing for any combination of soloists and/or collective "blowing." Optional stop-time with hand-clapping and vocal exhortations can help convey the Mingus spirit. Brass ranges are moderate.
