Product Description

Jelly Roll Composed by Charles Mingus. Arranged by Sy Johnson. For Jazz Ensemble. Published by Hal Leonard Publishing Corp. (Catalog # 07011437, UPC: 884088165420)

One of the most engaging and lighthearted of all Mingus' compositions, this was originally meant to provide a musical bridge from Jelly Roll Morton to Mingus' own unique compositional voice. Here is a marvelous version for big band that alternates between a medium slow 2-beat feel and straight ahead swing. Includes solos for trombone, alto and trumpet.
