The trombone section is featured in the beginning and is followed by the trumpet section. Following a solo section for trumpet and tenor, there is an effective key change and full ensemble shout chorus. Even though it is designed for young players, experienced bands will sound great playing this as well! From bebop master Dizzy Gillespie comes this lively tune in a great chart for younger players by Mark Taylor. It opens with a trumpet and alto on the head followed by a quintet of 3 saxes and 2 trumpets. A tutti ensemble section comes next followed by a flexible solo section for any combination of alto, tenor, trumpet or trombone. The brass ranges are reasonable and most rhythms are tutti. Let the maturity of your group determine how fast (or slow) you play this one, however.

In addition, each chart is written to sound full with a reduced instrumentation of only 3 saxes, 2 trumpets, 1 trombone and rhythm section. The brass ranges are reasonable with the lead trumpet never going above a written C and the rhythm section parts are carefully notated and thought-out. There is plenty of room for improvising, but just in case we´ve provided written solos. It is absolutely impossible to find a funkier tune than this R&B hit from the '70s courtesy of The Commodores. Paul's chart has it all from the trademark bass riff to the ensemble punches and melodic hooks. Bring down the house as you groove on this one!
