Sister Sadie composed by Horace Silver. Arranged by Bryan Kidd. For jazz band. Jazz Band. FJH Intermediate Jazz Ensemble. Grade 3. Score and set of parts. Duration 3 minutes. Published by The FJH Music Company Inc (FJ.JE4142).
Last thought: as Horace said, there's "polite bop" and then there's a "real slam, bang, kicking . . . kind of music." Within the realm of good taste and appropriate musicianship, we're looking for the latter. Have fun!
Sister Sadie was introduced to the world on Horace Silver's 1959 album Blowin' the Blues Away. Big band versions have included a Nat Pierce arrangement for Woody Herman's Thundering Herd (Woody Herman 1963) that featured a smokin' tenor solo by Sal Nistico, and a subsequent treatment in 1966 on Buddy Rich's Swingin' New Big Band album, arranged by tenor saxophonist (and featured soloist) Jay Corre. Just as with the Corre arrangement, you'll find all of the compositional elements contained in Horace Silver's performance. The main difference, aside from instrumentation, really comes down to tempo and groove, and a key (F versus the original G) that allows a more accessible tessitura for young players.
