Publisher: Alfred Publishing
Composer/arranger/educator Victor Goines has arranged this blues tune by W.C. Handy as a swing with Latin-rumba interludes. A clever update of a classic, check out the stylistic contrasts he writes along with the written solos for trumpet 2 and trombone 1. Lead trumpet range is to written A above the staff. This arrangement is correlated and discussed in the Jazz at Lincoln Center Jazz for Young People Curriculum. An original and creative chart.
