Originally recorded by Cannonball Adderley on his album Domination, Cyclops is one of those infectious charts that will make your audiences bob their heads, tap their feet, and snap their fingers! This tune grooves! Set as a medium-slow funky boogaloo, Oliver Nelson scores the melody to feature alto and trumpet, and there's solo space for alto, trumpet and tenor. This chart comes to a roar at the end as the full ensemble responds to the alto and trumpet melody calls. A fresh must-have for your jazz band library! Highly recommended!
