Rick Lawn brings us a funky take on a stretched-out blues form with a slippery melody and sophisticated harmonies. All goes according to plan through the melody and alto sax solo. A challenging unison brass soli follows and leads into a unique musical environment where soloists (one, few, or many) trade two-bar phrases with the ensemble. This provides lots of room for experimentation and freedom for the improvisers, since they aren't limited to a particular harmony or chord. A brief drum solo returns to the melody and a gospel-tinged coda. The trumpet range is to written B-flat with optional high D. A challenging chart that is well worth the effort, this is one of best funk charts we've heard! Highly recommended!
