Imagine Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers sitting in with Tito Puente's big band, and you've got Blue Mambo! While the rhythmic feel of the tune is absolutely Latin, the primary melody is a 24-bar long-form minor blues. The range of orchestration, from a "jazz combo" statement of the melody to full ensemble writing, will make it easy for your band to get in the groove of this tune. The accessible solo section has plenty of room, with optional solos for Alto Sax, Tenor Sax, Trumpet, Trombone, and Guitar. This chart is an impressive opener for any concert or festival performance. Highest trumpet note: B.
