Description

With an almost hypnotic 3/4 rhythmic pattern, here is an effective yet easy version of this standard made famous by John Coltrane. The saxes are featured on the first chorus then the brass get a chorus of their own. The simple solo section (using a single scale) makes this a great training piece for improvisation (sample solos are provided for all keys). A marvelously unique offering at the easy level!

Playable with 4 saxes, 3 trumpets, 3 trombones and rhythm.
