Edition: Jazz Big Band Arrangement

Description: Funky Rock - Advanced

Standard jazz big band plus 5th Trumpet, scat vocal or guitar, & tambourine; SATTB saxes. As recorded in 1972 by the Thad Jones-Mel Lewis Orchestra on their album Suite For Pops, this solo feature for scat vocalist or guitar opens with a big, full-band intro in slow swing before the 'funky 4 feel' takes over.

Duration 11:30.
