Description "Jocko" is an Afro/Latin chart written in 2016 by Steve Lewandowski. The composer writes: “Jocko (The Monkey)” for big band is a cool, straight eighth, Latin Jazz piece that features interplay between the horn sections of the band. The melody is stated in half steps reminiscent of “Impressions” style changes while the bridge contrasts with a short, downward moving chromatic line. Multiple soloists are offered the opportunity to stretch and build over the easy two-chord progression. More advanced soloists can tackle the bridge as well before the band hits the D.S.. This is a great chart to help get your band really listening to each other! Also available as a PDF.
