Wow! This is a blues with serious attitude! It comes out of the gate roaring and composer Jamie Roth has included plenty of interesting details that make this a standout chart for high school bands. Great dynamic contrasts are built in so there are some moments that whisper and some that explode. A great addition the swinging blues repertoire at this level.
