By Maynard Ferguson and Alan Downey / arr. Alan Baylock
Premier Jazz Series
4.5 (Medium Advanced / Difficult)
You gotta have this spectacular chart! Alan arranged this one reminiscent of Maynard’s version but in a lower key—the lead trumpet only goes to written D above the staff. Tempo is brisk at 220 BPM but you could play is a little slower. Solo space is provided for all four trumpets for flexibility. Truly outstanding!
