Gene Roland wrote for the Stan Kenton
Orchestra for almost the entire history of the Kenton Band. He wrote the
entire “Adventure in Blues” album
for that band, and this is just one of many highly original, swinging charts on
that recording. This is the edited
version written for standard big band instrumentation (works great). This
chart features the trombone section in a medium tempo blues. The Kenton Band
played this chart for years. The soloist, of course, is your top trombonist.
The piece was originally written for Bob Fitzpatrick who played on the Kenton
Band and was Stan’s lead trombonist for many years. You will love this
adaptation, which makes the chart very playable for most bands. 5-4-4-3
