This hard-swinging 12-bar blues features acoustic bass in a Thad Jones-inspired setting. It cooks right along and the ensemble provides solid support for the bass soloist. At a tempo of 140 bpm, this chart provides a very accessible opportunity for the unsung hero of the rhythm section to shine. Soprano sax leads the sax section. A unique and very cool trombone section plus bass soli is wrapped between solos for trumpet, soprano sax and bass before heading into the shout chorus. Brass ranges: trumpet to written high C and trombone to G-flat. Bass features are hard to find, and this one is outstanding!
