A Blues To Blow On
This swinging, easy to play chart sounds great and offers many teaching opportunities. Following the first 24 bars which are in unison, there’s a “call and response” section using just the notes from the Bb blues scale. This provides young players with notes that will work while improvising over blues changes in the open solo section, giving them an “I can do this!” sense of confidence. After the solos, the unison saxes enter softly, and crescendo to a roaring shout chorus when the brass joins in. Your young band will love it!
