||"Country Toad" by Chris Gallaher is a take on the old folk song "Froggie went a courtiní...". Very cleverly written for jazz ensemble in a 2 beat, country style. The rhythm section plays a key role in this chart. They control the country feel and yet drive the band to jazz and not the Grand Old Opry. Optional Alto or Tenor solo. A key change at bar 76 and the band shifts gears to straight ahead jazz.
