Knuckleball Blues

Grade 3      Swing      Composer:Paul Baker      Price:$50     

full version  

This is a medium swing “blues with a bridge” chart that plays off the unusual nature of a knuckleball’s trajectory and flight characteristics. Lots of fun “wobbles” and misdirection bring this hard swinging chart home in the melody and orchestration. Solo space is provided for tenor sax and trumpet with plenty of backgrounds as well. A full bodied shout chorus follows the solos before returning to the bridge and closing tag. Trumpet range is to written High C above the staff.
