Groove Merchant Arranged by Thad Jones. For Jazz Ensemble. Published by Kendor Music Inc. (Catalog # 4690, UPC: 822795046908)

Listed in "Teaching Music through Performance in Jazz" (GIA Publications) and recorded by the Thad Jones/Mel Lewis Jazz Orchestra on their Central Park North album, this great collaboration between band member Jerome Richardson (composer) and Thad Jones (arranger) has become an established standard for better bands. It's a mighty swinger with an edgy melody line, contemporary voicings, and lots of section work that's guaranteed to bring an audience to their feet. Changes for the open solo section are provided for soprano (or alto) sax, trumpet, trombone and piano/guitar. Rhythm section parts are partially notated with chords cued. Duration 5:30.
