ScootTim Fisher - Jalen Publishing
Rich Woolworth's bluesy medium-tempo shuffle chart is the perfect tune for developing ensembles to pay their dues on the blues in F. There's ad lib solo space for alto, tenor, trumpet or trombone that features a big ensemble build up to the solo to give the soloists some extra confidence. Next the tune goes through a nice ensemble section featuring unison rhythms throughout the band with short piano solo licks in between. With limited ranges (the lead trumpet never goes above F-sharp), limited brass instrumentation (three trumpets and three trombones), and easy rhythms, this chart is great for almost any performance. Additional features include a modulation and nice dynamic contrasts. Scoot swings hard in an uncomplicated way!
