Edition: Jazz Combo Arrangement (4 Horns with Rhythm)

Description: Swing - Advanced

Publisher: Second Floor Music/Hal Leonard

Three young Jazz Messengers contributed arrangements to this Blakey album: pianist GEOFF KEEZER, saxophonist JAVON JACKSON and trumpeter BRIAN LYNCH have since recorded their own albums as leaders. All these septet arrangements are provided with alternate parts. SEPTET INSTRUMENTATION Featuring a unison melody full of large intervals and unpredictable twists and turns, Byrdflight suddenly relaxes briefly into a subdued waltz-like figure before the energy of the original line resurfaces. The melody, backgrounds and shout chorus contain many of the elements of traditional bebop heads, but with larger intervals and a greater element of unpredictability. It will require some practice, but it's perfect for a technically proficient group looking to push the envelope and give a technically stunning performance. SOLOS: The chord changes move logically, mostly in major seconds, minor seconds, and perfect fourths, with many harmonic devices to add interest. These changes will require some practice.
