Blues shuffle : big band
by Gai Bryant (2008)
Score SampleView a sample of the score of this work
This is a very basic 12 bar blues arrangement with a lot of unison passages. The solo section is quite easy and has backgrounds that can be cued in to add a little more colour and drama to the piece. Blues Shuffle would be a great piece for beginner ensembles as it will come together quite quickly and features open, modern voicings in the ensemble parts.
Instrumentation: 2 alto saxophones, 2 tenor saxophones, 1 baritone saxophone, 4 trumpets, 4 trombones, piano, guitar, bass, drums.
Duration: 6 min.
Difficulty: Easy — an easy 12 bar blues with lots of unison passages
