Arranger EVANS, GIL
Composer YOUNG, JAMES "TRUMMY"
Voicing/Instrument JAZZ ENSEMBLE W/VOCAL
Publisher JAZZ LINES DISTRIBUTION
Evans took a simple little tune, arranged the first chorus as jump swing, employed a tricky modulation that is linear and dissonant part of the way (shades of Moon Dreams), and from the vocal on, turns Sorta Kinda into a fun exercise in bebop. Alternate parts are included for the two horns (a 4th trumpet and 3rd trombone) and the tuba part may be played by a bass trombone. The vocal melody is cued in the piano part and optional B-flat and E-flat soloist parts are included so that this may be played as an instrumental piano feature or with a soloist. 5-4-4-4
