Down A Notch
|A medium slow 12 bar blues in the Basie tradition - accessible figures that swing hard. At 120bpm the band can focus on the swing style and really making the shout chorus SHOUT. The chart opens with 2 choruses of piano solo before the saxes come in to state the melody. After a strong send-off, the floor is open for soloists. Bkgds the last time through lead to a big ensemble shout chorus. Trumpet range is to written High C. Trombone range is to G.
