You Seem a Little Blue, Warm-Up
Have your big band warm-up with a Bb blues. The rhythm section kicks things off and then the entire group plays Blues in the Closet, Sonneymoon for Two and Straight, No Chaser. An ideal register for easing into things and the unison melody is a great way to work on intonation, balance and swing, while learning three great blues melodies. There is an open solo section where the background line is C Jam Blues . . . in Bb. The final chorus revisits the 3 blues lines - all at once - with only dynamics to bring each melody to the fore! A wonderful cacophony every big band will love.
