From Bob Mintzer s recording Old School—New Lessons is this swing chart for proficient groups. Commissioned by the Danish Radio Big Band, this piece utilizes bucket mutes for the brass to allow the ensemble to achieve a quiet intensity. The saxophones adjust in dynamic level to match the delicate swing feel that showcases texture and interplay. Your rhythm section will enjoy a slightly different role than is the norm for playing in a big band.
