Product Description

Backburner Composed by Carl Strommen. For Jazz Ensemble. Published by Heritage Music Press. (Catalog # 60/1294H, UPC: 000308109702)

This bright, bluesy shuffle opens with a piano solo which may be played as written or improvised. The saxes follow with the opening statement of the tune accompanied by stop-time figures in the rhythm section. As the chart unfolds, the melody is segmented and passed around the winds. The solo section moves through several ii - V progressions so your soloists will have an opportunity to play over these essential jazz changes. "Backburner" is marked at the tempo of 132, but it also sounds great at 108!
