Recorded by JACKIE McLEAN on JACKIE'S BAG
Blue Note: CDP 7 46142 2 / Recorded September 1, 1960
Often labeled the most underrated jazz saxophonist of the 1960s, HAROLD 'TINA' BROOKS left a legacy of inspired compositions. Some of his recordings, mostly on Blue Note as a leader or sideman with top jazz musicians of the era, have only recently been issued. This lively composition features II-V progressions and is suitable for beginners.
1st part: Trumpet, Alto Sax, C treble clef
2nd part: Alto Sax, Tenor Sax
3rd part: Tenor Sax, Trombone, Baritone Sax
Rhythm Section: Piano, Bass, Drums, Guitar
This is a great easy composition for groups of any ability level. It features a simple, bluesy melody, rich 3-part harmonies, and a 24-bar form with a good contour that naturally lends itself to the development of large scale dynamics.
SOLOS: These bluesy changes spend 8 measures in F minor, 8 in B-flat minor, and 8 more in F minor. They are very simple and are great for beginners as well as for players who want to explore the line between blues-oriented material and more chord-specific playing.
HAROLD "TINA" BROOKS (1932-1974) Tenor Saxophonist Tina Brooks had a short but productive career (1957-61) where he recorded 4 albums as a leader and many others as a sideman for such artists as Kenny Burrell, Freddie Hubbard, Jackie McLean and Jimmy Smith and Bobby Timmons.
