Timeless: CD SJP 340 / Recorded February 1 & 2, 1990
Three young Jazz Messengers contributed arrangements to this Blakey album: pianist GEOFF KEEZER, saxophonist JAVON JACKSON and trumpeter BRIAN LYNCH have since recorded their own albums as leaders. All these septet arrangements are provided with alternate parts.

4th part: Tenor Sax 2, Baritone Sax
Rhythm Section: Piano, Bass, Drums, Guitar
This medium up swing chart seamlessly combines
chromatic and blues elements into a melody that sounds both progressive yet well grounded in the jazz tradition. There are also some different kinds of articulations that will challenge your group to pay careful attention to all the little details and get their phrasing together.
SOLOS: Like the melody, the changes meld the traditional and unconventional. The recorded tempo is moderate, thereby giving the soloist time to deal with the unconventional aspects of the solo changes. The changes are playable by a moderately skilled soloist.
Brian Lynch/Keep Your Circle Small (Sharp Nine 1001)
