(Orange Juice with Attitude)Paul Baker - Bakers Jazz and More
Wow... orange drink with an attitude! Texas writer Paul Baker presents an outstanding funk chart beginning with a piano riff to set up the rhythm groove before the trumpet and altos hit with the melody. Trombones and low saxes support with counterpoint. After the trombones take it through the bridge the saxes again state the melody in a dramatic stop time section that moves into the trumpet and trombone solos. After a drum solo, the bari and bass trombone shine as they set the funky foundation for the shout chorus. A return of the piano riff sets up the final melodic statement and dramatic coda. Trumpet range to written High C. Trombone to G. Pure fun, and highly recommended!
