John Graas - Jazz Lines Publications
Click to review
6/4 Trend, from John Graas' "French Horn Jazz" album was originally released in 1954 and was re-released in 2004. "French Horn Jazz" was Graas' first solo release, and featured works by many of the people he frequently worked with, including Shorty Rogers, Jimmy Giuffre, and Nelson Riddle, as well as a few of his own compositions. 6/4 Trend has several innovative aspects, including its 6/4 meter interpreted as 4+2, a bit of tonal ambiguity, a solo section that is harmonically static, and a wind section that is thick. There is a percussion montuno figure that may be played on snare (with snares off), high tom, or bongo. Instrumentation: Tenor Saxophone, Baritone Saxophone, Bass Saxophone (or Tuba or Bass Trombone), Trumpet, F Horn (or Trombone), Piano, Bass, and Drums.
