The Way of the Groove

Composed and arranged by Ben Patterson

With this groovy tour de force, Ben expands upon the title cut from his “The Way of the Groove” small group recording. This jumps right into the action at the very top with a head-bobbing melody and funky Tower of Power groove. The A-B-C form makes for fun and interesting solos that can be passed around before diving into the 5-flute soli. Yes, you read that right. The open guitar solo vamp gradually builds to a frenzy before plunging back into the head and a flag-waving finish that should leave everyone a little breathless in the audience AND in the band. [Instrumentation: 5 saxes (with flutes), 8 brass, 4 rhythm]
