Get inspired as your band gets ready for their appearance at the Village Vanguard with this slammin’ blues. You’ll be inspired by the growth of your musicians as players and improvisers. Open solo sections with changes in everyone’s part empower and excite your musicians to broaden their skills and communicate their ideas to your audience. Your band sounds great as a unit playing interesting ensemble parts with manageable ranges for trumpets (high-C) and trombone (high-Bb). Your rhythms section can lay down a solid groove in a familiar key and a unique set of changes makes this chart challenging and accessible.
I composed this chart for my jazz band in the Shoreline Community College extension program. Community members who loved to play filled the group. The title came from my frustration with the Seattle transportation plan – or the lack thereof – and how the Seattle process seemed to impede movement. Can music be a vehicle for political growth or only for therapeutic release?
