Arranged by James Miley. Score and parts. Published by Walrus Music Publishing (WA.51605).
Item Number: WA.51605
Another treatment of a Ron Miles tune. This chart begins with an intensely chromatic contrapuntal layering effect that builds to a frenzy before breaking into a laid-back medium swing groove with Basie-style hits in the brass. The solo section (for trumpet) is wide open with no chord changes and non-pitched graphic notation of background figures, ultimately climaxing in a fevered free-for-all with everyone improvising together before closing with a delicate ballad statement based on the original melody. 5,5,4,G,P,B,D.
