Audio Sample:

Edition: Jazz Quintet/Sextet Arrangement (2 or 3 Horns with Rhythm)

Description: Medium Latin - Medium Easy

Publisher: Second Floor Music/Hal Leonard

Pianist JAMES WILLIAMS is one of contemporary jazz's most prominent and prolific composers, writing first for the Jazz Messengers and then for his own groups, including his current working group I.C.U. Williams' writing skills have been utilized by numerous artists, including Gary Burton, Art Farmer, Tommy Flanagan, the Boys Choir of Harlem, and on this recording with legendary trumpeter Donald Byrd. This Latin rhythm piece, recorded here by a quintet, also includes parts for sextet performance, and is ideal for beginners.


This composition is playable by almost any group, but will challenge the sensitivity and musicality of even the most seasoned jazz musician. It works very well with either a 2- or 3-instrument front line.

SOLOS: The changes lend themselves well to inspiring lyrical, well-constructed solos. The inexperienced soloist gets plenty of time on each change, and the advanced player gets plenty of room to fully explore a key center before moving on.
