Contains many of the elements of The Human Impersonator but not nearly as difficult. This arrangement also moves freely back and forth between the pre-arranged and the freely-improvised, but it's much less technically demanding, with only a couple of tricky spots to contend with. Its a great way to expose a moderately experienced group to Donald Brown's music.
SOLOS: These changes alternate 4- or 8-bar phrases on one chord with phrases where the chords move quickly.
