Recorded by ART BLAKEY & THE JAZZ MESSENGERS on MOANIN'
Blue Note: CDP 7 46516 2 / Recorded October 30, 1958
||Medium swing (shuffle)
This BOBBY TIMMONS standard became Art Blakey & The
Jazz Messengers' most well-known piece. It has Timmons' trademark gospel-shuffle feel, also evident in his writing for Cannonball Adderley's quintet and his own trios.
1st part: Trumpet, Alto Sax, C treble clef
2nd part: Tenor Sax, Baritone Sax, Trombone
Rhythm Section: Piano, Bass, Drums, Guitar
This arrangement is a great showpiece and a crowd-pleaser for any group. Every horn player should check out the original recording for the meticulous 2-horn phrasing of Lee Morgan and Benny Golson.
SOLOS: The bluesy nature of these changes allows the soloist to choose between sticking to the blues scale or outlining the changes more explicitly. It also makes them more accessible to less experienced improvisers who can construct an entire solo from just a few notes.
