By focusing on the intervals of a second and a seventh, Jaspar creates a colorful melody over changes roughly equvalent to those of What Is This Thing Called Love. Some of the large intervals may require a little work at first, but this intriguing melody will surely make for an impressive performance. The B section of the melody is given different settings at the beginning and at the end.
SOLOS: The solo changes are full of II-Vs and they stay within the easier key centers, making them playable by musicians of most any ability level.
originally on J.J. Johnson/Dial J.J.5 (Columbia CL 1085)
