Audio Sample:

Edition: Jazz Big Band Arrangement

Description: Medium Difficult

Publisher: Walrus Music Publishing

This chart sounds much more difficult than it is. A blues variation in 13/4 over a hard rock ostinato, the V chord area shifts to 12/8 (dotted quarter remains constant). Sections are scored as units, for the most part. Solo changes appear in bari, guitar and piano parts, but could go anywhere. Scored solo space for electric bass, as well as two collective improvisations. The tune is kicked off by a Tenor 1 cadenza (could be guitar, or anyone) leading to the ostinato. Lead Trumpet to written E, Trombone 1 to A. Originally written to feature the quartet, Equilateral, with college-level big bands, the inspiration for this tune came from two songs from Led Zeppelin II Moby Dick and Heartbreaker. Its shreddin' time! SoloistTenor 1; Bari Sax, Guitar, Piano (or anyone); Electric Bass. Doubles none. Brass 5 trumpets, 4 trombones. Medium .
