Chip McNeill - Kendor Music, Inc.
Commissioned by the Jazz Division of the Illinois Music Educators Association for the 2014 Illinois All-State Jazz Ensemble, this in-the-pocket blues swinger has it all! Opening with an extended rhythm section introduction to set the mood, the horns enter with a strong melody. Solid ensemble work and plenty of space for solos over the blues-based changes all combine to make this chart a must-have for any library. Highly recommended!
