Audio Sample:

Edition: JAZZ SEXTET ARRANGEMENT (3 HORNS WITH RHYTHM)

Description: SWING - MEDIUM The Jazz Messengers were recorded in live performance for this clever funky treatment of the nursery rhyme. CURTIS FULLER's arrangement features the original Walton/Merrit groove line behind the solos.

SEXTET INSTRUMENTATION:

This impressive, funky rendition of the nursery rhyme is full of phrases extended to feature the drummer (Art Blakey on the recording) as well as interesting reharmonizations of the melody. Some of the rhythmic curveballs make this surprisingly tricky, but not difficult. SOLOS: The solo section alternates 12 bars on one chord with a 4-bar sequence of II-Vs. These changes are suitable for improvisers of any ability level.
