||CROOKED RIVER BOOGALOO
(5:15) (5-4-4-4, opt. vib) (med. funk) (Gr. II-IV)
(solos: Al Sx 1, Ten Sx 1, Gtr) ($55)
A perfect funk vehicle for younger bands, this one has
precisely notated thythm parts to help create the
motor that drives the rest of the band. Of course,
more experienced players can add their own thing. A
nimble, two-chord vamp is the heart and soul of this
chart. Guitar has space to blow right up front.
After a unison trpt-alto statement of the quirky them,
it returns as a sax soli joined by brass. Without
slackening the pace, a new bass line and chord
progression is introduced to provide solo space for
the lead alto. An altered reprise of the opening is
followed by a tenor solo. A brief coda nods to Diz on
the way out.
