Edition: Jazz Small Group Arrangement

Description: Swing - Medium

Publisher: Jazz Lines Publications

Duke Pearson's "Gaslight" was originally performed on his 1965 album "Sweet Honey Bee." This is an overall very subdued melody, and it should never be played with excessive agression or volume even while soloing. The tune features a highly alluring melody, but its chord progression and form (22 bars) can be deceptively tricky.

The march-time section after the solos should have an overall clipped quality to it. Notes marked staccato should be overexaggerated, and the entire section should be performed with a very heavy swing feel to it. Once again, although the volume level is a bit higher during this portion of the tune, it should never veer into excessive territory.

Originally performed in quintet format featuring trumpet and tenor sax as the frontline, we have included alternate parts for alto sax and trombone, as well as an optional guitar part. The alternate alto parts can be used as a substitute for either trumpet or tenor sax, while the trombone part is a tenor sax sub only.
