Audio Sample:

Edition: Jazz Combo Arrangement (Two Horns With Rhythm)

Description: Swing - Medium Easy

Publisher: Second Floor Music/Hal Leonard

Mobley's arrangements for the band helped define the sound and style of future Blakey units and many other recording groups of the period. QUINTET INSTRUMENTATION:

  • 1st part: Trumpet, Alto Sax, C treble clef
  • 2nd part: Tenor Sax, Alto Sax, Trombone
  • Rhythm Section: Piano, Bass, Drums, Guitar Includes full score. "B For BB" was one of Mobley's early dates as a leader, and is now available again. A straight-ahead swinger, it is an easy bebop head that practically swings by itself with a couple of rhythmic twists and chromatic figures thrown in to maintain interest. The solo section includes some traded fours between soloist and ensemble and the rhythm section parts move seamlessly between keeping time and accentuating some of the more prominent rhythms played by the horns. This will be fun to play for players of all ability levels. SOLOS: The changes move between F and B-flat. These are excellent changes for all improvisers regardless of their level of skill. II-V changes.
