The Mixup

Composed and arranged by Ben Patterson

The perfect blowing chart for multiple soloists of different ability levels, this chart mixes it up with open Bb blues choruses in three different tempos! With it's twisted 5-note motif and time transitions, you'll see why Ben calls this one The Mixup. The  transitions are intuitive and are a great learning tool for developing understanding of three-over-two patterns. [Instrumentation: 5 saxes, 8 brass, 4 rhythm]

Recorded by The Airmen of Note on "The 2019 Jazz heritage Series."
