The blues form is essential to jazz, and this very easy swing chart is a perfect way to introduce developing players to this form. The melody consists of just five notes that may also be used as the basis of anyone's improvised solo. The open solo section allows for as much improvisation practice as desired. An abundance of full ensemble work rounds out the package. The flexible scoring is for standard jazz ensemble instrumentation (also playable by as few as five horns plus rhythm section) with optional flute, clarinet and horn in F parts included.
