Watermelon ManHerbie Hancock/arr. Gordon Goodwin - Alfred Publishing Belwin Division
This classic Herbie Hancock composition has become one of the most familiar songs in jazz history. Gordon Goodwin wanted to do something a little different in his arrangement without violating the spirit and intent of the original version. He scored it as a jazz shuffle that screams excitement! Solis, big ensemble sections, modulations and solo space for alto, tenor, bari, trumpet 4 and trombone will provide all the excitement you need. As recorded on Gordon's newest CD, Act Your Age. Get it while it's hot! Highly recommended!
