Hey Benny Composed by Mike Dana. For Jazz Ensemble. Published by Kendor Music Inc. (Catalog # 60285, UPC: 822795602852)

Here is a fun medium-up swing chart for developing groups that pays homage to the great Benny Golson. Features include reasonable range requirements, notated rhythm section parts, and an easy, but very hip, solo section. This will garner a great response from your audience as an opener or closer. Suggested solos are provided, but the composer urges novice jazz players to improvise over the easy-to-navigate chord progression. Each set also includes a guitar chord chart by Jim Greeson. Duration 4:45.
