Item Number: S0.504905
Captures the spirit of traditional blues in a playable arrangement. Includes optional bass guitar and drum parts but is effective as a stand alone SATB Sax quartet. Includes an 8 bar chorus open for solos. Should be performed in a rather loose playing style consistent with old time blues bands. Tempo works effectively anywhere from Adagio to Allegro making this chart very versatile. Suggestion: try starting at a very slow tempo and then picking it up to a more lively feel at the D.S. a la New Orleans funeral lines.
