full version  

A hip-hop blues in the style of the Brecker Brothers Band, this chart pays tribute to the contemporary harmonic sidesteps and sly melodic lines so often found in their music. A simple drum groove begins the chart, and this can be opened up as a feature spot for the drummer, followed by the rest of the rhythm section setting up the foundation for the chart. Trumpet and tenor sax are featured, naturally, and changes for alto and trombone are included as well. Trumpet. range is to written high C.
