This arrangement seamlessly integrates parallel fourths with intricate individual lines for the front line. The explicitly-constructed rhythm parts also give the chart a funky feel for the A section, contrasting with the more harmonically dense texture used to accompany the bluesy melody of the bridge. This chart also has an ingenious ending.
SOLOS: The changes are not difficult and provide a good vehicle for contrasting more intricate lines that reflect the specific harmonies with bluesy lines that reflect the overall tonality of the composition.
BOBBY WATSON (b. 1953). One of the most gifted composers and arrangers in Jazz today, versatile alto-saxophonist Bobby Watson has recorded his compositions on more than 30 albums in diverse settings from sax quartets as a member of the 29th Street Saxophone Quartet, to combos with his group Horizon, to his "Tailor Made" big band. After receiving his degree in music theory and composition from the University of Miami, Bobby completed his jazz education in the late '70s as a member of Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers where he served as music director for 2 years in a group that included Wynton Marsalis, James Williams, Billy Pierce and Charles Fambrough. A recipient of an NEA grant for composition and a frequent clinician across the country, Bobby's works such as Appointment In Milano, Wheel Within A Wheel, Conservation and Beatitudes have been recorded by Blakey, Wynton Marsalis, Kevin Mahogany, T.S.
