- Options available
With accessible range and rhythms well within young player’s comfort zone, your students will be confident in playing this bluesy swing style chart. Adequate repetition, with just enough subtle change, allows the band to lock in, find the pocket, and sound mature. The chart swings hard. Your students will learn to groove on the more aggressive side of swing, playing with intention and feel, digging into the accents. Solos are based on a safe B♭ Blues scale but you can encourage your students to explore the shift to the D♭ chord change during the solo section. Ideal for showcasing not only soloists but the entire ensemble.
