Shortstop Composed by Carl Strommen. For Jazz Ensemble. Published by Kendor Music Inc. (Catalog # 61695, UPC: 822795616958)

Following up on the popularity of the composer's baseball-inspired big band chart, Double Play, this shuffle opens with an ad lib solo for piano and grooves from start to finish. A stop-time section gives the brass ample opportunity to shine. This piece for advancing groups has notated rhythm parts, a memorable melody, and lots of dynamic contrast. Written or ad lib solos are assigned to trumpet and tenor sax, but the solo section may be opened up for more soloists. A guitar chord chart by Jim Greeson is included. Duration 3:55.
