Recorded by DON SICKLER on NIGHT WATCH
Uptown UPCD 27.39 / Recorded September 19 & 21, 1990
1st part: Trumpet, Alto Sax
2nd part: Alto Sax
3rd part: Tenor Sax
4th part: Trombone, Baritone Sax
Rhythm Section: Piano, Bass, Drums, Guitar
A challenging composition and arrangement, there's no place to hide in Ronnie: you have to keep your wits about you at all times. Each of the horn parts have short solo spaces interwoven into the fabric of the shout chorus. The horn background can be used for any soloist.
SOLOS: long form (56 measures) but not complicated chord movement. A lot of fun to play on.
