Rhythm Section: Piano, Bass, Drums, Guitar
After a haunting horn and bass intro, the drums set a slightly faster Latin groove for the horn melody interplay which alternates in 8-measure sections: Latin to swing. Another great composition by a legendary jazz composer.
SOLOS: The solo section is straight ahead swing. The 8-measure sections (ABAC) in the solo chorus alternate 2-measure per chord sections (A) with faster moving II-Vs (both major and minor) in the B and C sections. The horn background can be played behind any soloist.
Bertha Hope/Between 2 Kings (Minor Music [Koch] 801025)
ELMO HOPE (1923-1967). A classically trained pianist with technique rivaling that of his childhood friend Bud Powell and a composer of music whose inventiveness and complexity approaches that of Thelonious Monk, Elmo Hope is only now beginning to achieve the recognition he deserves because of recent reissues of his albums and the efforts of his soulmate and muse, Bertha Hope, an excellent pianist and composer as well. Although his career was circumscribed by drug problems, he recorded several albums as a leader with sidemen including John Coltrane, Paul Chambers, Blue Mitchell, Frank Foster and Jimmy Heath. His compositions have been recorded by Clifford Brown (with whom he played), Art Blakey, Charlie Rouse, James Spaulding, Lou Donaldson, Harold Land, T.S. Monk, Ralph Moore and others.
