Recorded by ART FARMER & CLIFFORD JORDAN on BLAME IT ON MY YOUTH
Contemporary: CCD-14042 / Recorded February 4, 1988
Another arrangement recorded by CLIFFORD JORDAN pairs the composer with internationally revered trumpeter Art Farmer, who first recorded with saxophonist Wardell Gray and co-led the Jazztet
with Benny Golson.
1st part: Trumpet, Alto Sax, C treble clef
2nd part: Tenor Sax, Alto Sax (Baritone Sax), Trombone
Rhythm Section: Piano, Bass, Drums, Guitar
This medium uptempo composition contains catchy idiomatic melodies which will greatly enhance a jazz vocabulary. It also requires the rhythm section to show some independence.
SOLOS: The A section generally stays within the C minor, G minor, B-flat major realm, while the bridge explores several more distant key centers. These changes are unique yet playable with a little practice.
