||"New London Blues" was written in 2007 by Dr. Robert Kase. This work was commissioned by and dedicated to The New London Middle School Jazz Ensemble directed by Max Carpenter. This tune is a hard shuffle with a quarter note = 144. The Trpt. section states the melody in unison and the Saxes join in with a nice counterpoint riff. Trombones add a third part. Solo for Trpt. 2 and Drums. Key of F. Nicely written shout chorus. Great chart for a younger band as well as a reader for older groups.
