2nd part:Tenor Sax 1, Alto Sax

4th part: Trombone, Baritone Sax

Lynch skillfully weaves in and out of traditional
bebop phrases. This is great for a group that has a firm grasp of more conventional melodies and harmonies and is ready for the next level. This chart explores the unfamiliar while giving the listener (and performer) glimpses of the familiar to latch onto.
SOLOS: The changes are full of II-Vs, but they aren't always laid out as one would expect. In keeping with the underlying principles of the entire composition, there are also some more unconventional harmonic devices that occur periodically throughout the form.
