Audio Sample:

Edition: Jazz Combo Arrangement (2 Horns with Rhythm)

Description: Swing - Medium

Publisher: Second Floor Music/Hal Leonard

From a 1970s Jazz Messengers lineup, bassist MICKEY BASS provides an arrangement in 6/4 meter easy enough to be tackled by inexperienced players (and stimulating enough to have been recorded by Art Blakey!).


This arrangement places a simple, slow moving melody over an exciting, rhythmically active rhythm section accompaniment. The rhythm section also has the option of switching from a 6/4 to a 12/8 for four bars near the end of the form to add further interest.

SOLOS: The solos are arranged in an 8+6+8 measure format with each chord change getting two full measures. This leaves plenty of time for exploration on each chord and assures that even inexperienced soloists will find something to say over these changes.

*Jazz Repertory Transcription Series = includes chord voicings, bass lines, fills in drum parts, cued melody lines in rhythm section parts.
