Route 66 - Head Chart for Trombone Quartet and Rhythm Section

This standard is available here for 4 Trombones and Rhythm section.

This arrangement was written as a “Head” chart where, after the initial rundown of the melody, the form is repeated for as many soloists as are desired before a final repeat playing the tune and proceeding to the second ending. Chord changes are provided in all parts for flexibility in soloist selection. Optionally, the brief stop-time at measure 27 makes for a good place for the ensemble to come back in during a final solo and head on through the 2nd ending. Another performance option: It works well to start this tune with walking bass alone, horns come in at the head, then add full rhythm at measure 15 the first time..

The lead trombone part requires high range capability up to a high “C” but all four prats remain appropriate to their roles in the section. This chart makes for a good opportunity for a trombone quartet to perform this tune in harmony with a rhythm section.
