An Open and Shut Case
|A hard swinging riff based tune that features the trumpet section with plungers. Trombones use plungers later in the chart as well. “Blues with a bridge” solos for trumpet, tenor sax, and the drummer grabs 8 bars before an acapella shout section leads into a flag waving finale. Lots of independent section work lets each part of the ensemble shine. Trumpet range to written high C.
