This song was arranged for True North and performed on the main stage of the Jazz Education Network (JEN) 2018 conference. The arrangement is based on the structure of Joshua Redman’s visioning on the album ‘Back East’, including the idea of stop time of the head and moving the form through regular key changes. The vocal version has a powerhouse soli loosely based on Redman’s sax solo, plus opportunity for improvising over a version of the familiar standard. The first chorus of the head can feature a single soloist, or has the opportunity to be passed down the line one by one. A fun up-tempo swing challenge for your rhythm section as well!
Vocal range: Guys Bb2 – Ab4, Ladies F#3 – Bb5. Included: vocal score, bass part, rhythm score.
- Demo: Live performance by Pacific Standard Time (Christine Guter, director)
