Set in Clifford Brown's original key of E-flat, his great example of contrapuntal jazz gives everyone their own independent part. Every member of the group must play their own part with confidence and yet blend into the big picture. The melody at the end is set in an entirely different fashion from that of the beginning, requiring special attention. It also requires the rhythm section to play an active role in the contrapuntal texture rather than simply that of accompanists.
SOLOS: The changes are full of II-Vs and modulate from E-flat to E to F and back to E-flat, covering a lot of harmonic ground in a single 32-bar form.
* Jazz Repertory Transcription Series includes chord voicings, bass lines, drum fills and cued melody lines in rhythm section parts.
CLIFFORD BROWN (1930-1956). Although his tragically short career ended in a car crash at age 25, Brownie, a member of Downbeat's Hall of Fame, is considered one of the greatest jazz trumpeters and composers of all time. With exceptional technique and tone and an ability to play deeply moving ballads, he has influenced every major trumpet player since. He is most famous for his collaborations with Max Roach and his recordings have been reissued on Blue Note and Verve boxed sets. His many compositions, including the standards Joy Spring and Daahoud, have been recorded by Dizzy Gillespie, Oscar Peterson, Sarah Vaughn, Stan Getz, Helen Merrill, George Shearing, Freddie Hubbard, Ahmad Jamal,
Arturo Sandoval, Wes Montgomery, McCoy Tyner and many, many others.
