UNISON FRONT LINE INSTRUMENTATION
RECORDED AS A QUARTET
Front Line: Tenor Sax, B-flat, E-flat, C treble clef, C bass clef
Rhythm Section: Piano, Bass, Drums, Guitar
Piano Voicings by Mulgrew Miller
Bass Lines by Curtis Lundy
Bassist CURTIS LUNDY's contribution to this date with tenor sax giant Johnny Griffin makes a great feature for the bass. The bass doubles the melody in each A section. Unusual AABA form: head 7,7,8,9; solos 8,6,8,8. A lot of fun.
SOLOS: The chord progression ranges from simple diatonic changes in F minor to brief sections of planing chords and obscure keys. However, they encompass much of what one encounters in modern jazz harmony and they're great for an intermediate soloist who's ready for something beyond simple II-Vs.
