Recorded by BOBBY WATSON & HORIZON on THE INVENTOR
Blue Note: CDP 7 91915 2 / Recorded in June, 1989
||Medium up swing
1st part: Trumpet, Alto Sax, C treble clef
2nd part: Alto Sax, Tenor Sax, Trombone
Rhythm Section: Piano, Bass, Drums, Guitar
This composition features extended pedal tones in the rhythm section. The melody is not difficult, but it does require mature phrasing to execute some of the extended syncopations.
SOLOS: The solo section presents some challenging changes, but each section repeats a four-chord pattern several times, so although the harmonies are not easy, there aren't many of them to master before you can play over the entire form.
