Audio Sample:

Edition: Jazz Sextet Arrangement [3 Horns and Rhythm]

Description: Swing - Medium Difficult

Publisher: Second Floor Music/Hal Leonard

The T.S. Monk Sextet's albums on Blue Note display this group's dedication to performing a repertory of modern jazz classics.


This energetic medium swing treatment of a jazz classic places the melodic and harmonic elements in a different light. By raising the tempo, doubling the length of each chord (and quadrupling it in a fiery double-time solo section), augmenting some phrases, and voicing the horns in a manner reminiscent of Monk's own piano style, the composition takes flight in a fresh direction while maintaining the character of the original.

SOLOS: The solo section maintains the well-known chord changes of the original, but gives them new meaning in the context of a faster tempo. These changes, while in E-flat minor, are not difficult and are essential for any aspiring jazz musician to master.
