Product #: 64006
Credits: Thad Jones
Series: Vanguard Jazz Orchestra Signature Edition
Instrumentation: standard jazz ensemble
Range: E6 trumpet, G4 trombone
Style: Straight-Ahead Blues
Grade: Advanced
Description: This 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. This extended 16-bar blues still maintain that swinging Basie mindset in a straight-ahead blues style. 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 4:40.
