Description: Written for and recorded by the Sammy Nestico Orchestra on the CD This Is The Moment, this minor blues explores a variety of colors within the full-band setting. For this reason, striving for good blend on the alto/trumpet and tenor/trombone figures are very important. If possible, the guitarist should comp most of his/her part rather than playing it in straight time.
Description: This bright jazz style chart was recorded by the SWR Big Band on the CD Fun Time, and requires a trumpet section with both delicacy and power. This piece contains solo work for trumpet and piano, along with a few ensemble sections. Rhythm section parts are partially notated with chords cued.
