Foundation Issues, Paul Baker Stage Band Grade 3
This hard swinging 12-bar blues features the acoustic bass in a Thad Jones inspired setting. At a tempo of 140bpm, this chart provides a very accessible opportunity for the unsung hero of the rhythm section to shine. Soprano sax leads the sax section. A trombone section+bass soli is wrapped between a trumpet solo and soprano sax and bass solos before heading onto the shout chorus. Trumpet range is written to high C. Trombone range is to Gb.
