Here’s an easy-going swing tune to feature your trombonists! This original from Aaron Hettinga features some nice soli section playing along with space for solos. There are plenty of texture changes around: tight high harmony, call & response, solo support, group articulations, great chances to showcase quartet section playing and provide opportunities to teach developing players about ABAC form and ensemble.
While the top two bone parts can be a bit taxing in range (the lead part especially as it hangs around high C for the much of the last page), the lower parts are mostly straightforward for what’s found in Big Band swing charts.
Written for 4 Trombones with Rhythm Section, the Demo MP3 recording is included along with the PDF download.
Also available as a Trombone feature for Big Band.
