Product #:64046
Credits:Thad Jones
Series:Vanguard Jazz Orchestra Signature Edition
Instrumentation:standard jazz ensemble
Ranges:F#6 trumpet, A4 trombone
Style:Basie Swing
Description:This new advanced level edition is taken directly from the original ink parts that were on the stands at the Thad Jones-Mel Lewis Jazz Orchestra (now the Vanguard Jazz Orchestra) debut performance in February 1966 and continues to be played by the group Monday nights at the Village Vanguard in New York City. Originally commissioned by Count Basie for an entire album of Thad Jones’ music, however Basie never made the record, instead suggesting that Thad start his own band. Low Down still maintains that swinging Basie mindset and is a 32- measure AABA form. Its basic foundations are a relaxed but powerful rhythm section with a driving ride cymbal beat and crisp hi-hat, underpinning saxes and brass that are tight, and always on the back of the beat. Duration 3:40.
