This funky uptempo composition alternates, as the title suggests, call and response with unisons. Its easy, bluesy melody combines with an infectious groove to make it fun to play. This composition can encourage the development of a musical personality while challenging an inexperienced rhythm section to create a comfortable groove at a slightly elevated tempo.
SOLOS: These simple chord changes which stay in F through much of the form give players a chance to get inside the personality of the composition.
BOBBY WATSON (b. 1953). One of the most gifted composers and arrangers in Jazz today, versatile alto-saxophonist Bobby Watson has recorded his compositions on more than 30 albums in diverse settings from sax quartets as a member of the 29th Street Saxophone Quartet, to combos with his group Horizon, to his "Tailor Made" big band. After receiving his degree in music theory and composition from the University of Miami, Bobby completed his jazz education in the late '70s as a member of Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers where he served as music director for 2 years in a group that included Wynton Marsalis, James Williams, Billy Pierce and Charles Fambrough. A recipient of an NEA grant for composition and a frequent clinician across the country, Bobby's works such as Appointment In Milano, Wheel Within A Wheel, Conservation and Beatitudes have been recorded by Blakey, Wynton Marsalis, Kevin Mahogany, T.S.
