STARTER SERIES - A swinging, fun blues chart written to be accessible for developing vocal jazz ensembles! This arrangement is based on Frank Foster's arrangement of Morgan Ames' original composition written to feature Diane Schuur on a 1987 Grammy-Winning album with the Count Basie Orchestra. The chart features a female vocalist who can deliver a lyric with soul, and it leaves some space for improvisation anywhere in your group. A solid opener or closer, the chart varies between unison/octaves and well-voiced three and four-part chords that will provide both challenge and variety for younger jazz choirs.
Notated piano and bass parts, drums (Full score included)
Commissioned by The Eckstein Middle School Jazz Choir, Moc Escobedo, dir. (2016)
