Buy the Part Tracks (played on piano) and the Rhythm Track above!
A straight-ahead bebop chart on Tadd Dameron’s composition, this one has a killer soli section that’s exciting and flashy enough to show off your choir and well-grounded enough in the jazz tradition to give your students exposure to some solid bebop musical language. Solo space for singers and instrumentalists, and backgrounds to keep the texture interesting throughout. The ending vamp brings the chart full-circle and slightly pulls back the intensity of the finish, but the arrangement, as a whole, will be a high-energy part of any program for a skilled vocal jazz group!
