Recorded by ROY HARGROVE on DIAMOND IN THE ROUGH
Novus: 3082 2 N / Recorded in December, 1989
Trumpeter ROY HARGROVE is one of jazz's rising young stars. Like Geoff Keezer, Hargrove has also proven himself an insightful composer, often combining forms and rhythms in his arrangements (see his sextet arrangement).
1st part: Trumpet, Alto Sax, C treble clef
2nd part: Alto Sax, Tenor Sax, Trombone
Rhythm Section: Piano, Bass, Drums, Guitar
At the recorded tempo this arrangement presents a number of challenges: matching phrasing of complex unison lines between the two horns, irregular form, and long stretches of syncopations that desperately try to work their way onto a downbeat. However, it also works very well at a more moderate tempo at which these issues become much less formidable and well within the grasp of a reasonably well-versed jazz quintet.
SOLOS: The changes and form are irregular and will require some practice.
ROY HARGROVE (b. 1969). Like his mentor, Wynton Marsalis, Texas-born trumpeter Roy Hargrove has reached the pinnacle of the Jazz world at a very young age. A winner of both the "Downbeat" and "Jazz Times" readers' polls for trumpet, Roy's commissioned work, Love Suite In Mahogany, was premiered at New York City's Lincoln Center. A Verve recording artist, Roy records his compositions with distinguished sidemen including Johnny Griffin, Joe Henderson, Wynton Marsalis, Christian McBride and Joshua Redman. Most recently, he recorded and toured with his Crisol Habana big band.
