A new, soon to be released chart from Kendor Music
This is a swinger in the Blue Note tradition and is based on an evolving minor blues progression. Just as the groove progresses from 2-beat swing to straight ahead 4, so does the harmonic progression which begins as a 16 bar extended minor blues. The chart builds to a solo send off for guitar, trombone or 2nd trumpet and the progression at this points has evolved to an altered blues style but now with a bridge. Backgrounds for the soloist can be introduced at will and the solo section can be opened up for multiple choruses. At this point the drummer could choose to use a shuffle feel. Audiences and musicians alike should enjoy this toe tapper.
Soon to be available from Kendor Music.
