5.4 on the Richter Scale is an upbeat modern-sounding swing chart that really cooks! Hip 5/4 blues sections are contrasted with a straight-ahead swingin' 4/4 blues, which gives this chart its unique appeal. There are plenty of opportunities for your soloists to improvise on 4/4 blues changes, or with the written suggested solos included. It will sound great with full or reduced instrumentation. Tired of the same old blues? 5.4 on the Richter Scale is a really fresh chart for your next concert!
