This arrangement of Steely Dan's “Third World Man” follows the key and form of the original track but brings in some additional horn lines not in the studio version to make for an exciting live performance!
The lead sheet/rhythm chart displays the full vocal lead and lyrics, along with chords and cues for the rest of the rhythm section with chords and slashes only through the guitar solo section. The horn charts are of moderate range or difficulty with only a short technical passage in the coda ascending to a written high “C” in the trumpet part.
While written for a band with 4 horns, the Baritone Sax part may be omitted and things will still work out as a 3-horn chart. This arrangement has been prepared in the original key of F minor, as recorded.
A fantastic song to slip into your Steely Dan tribute!
