Stompin' on a Riff
As an homage to the great Count Basie, composer/arranger David Berger delivers just what the title says---this chart is truly Stompin' on a Riff. Features include a piano intro, a sax section melody and some brass, written solos for 2nd trumpet and 1st alto, a modulation, some piano fills, another modulation and a diminuendo into the shout chorus. This chart swings hard---you'll love it! (3:41)"This excellent blues chart in the Basie style uses the keys of G, Ab, Eb, and Ab. The written solos for piano, trumpet, and alto sax include changes and fit the style well. The writing includes a great shout chorus and some neat plunger work for the trumpets"- The Instrumentalist This title is available through SmartMusic.
