Funky. Pure and simple. Funky.
We got our inspiration by the groove of songs like Play That Funky Music White Boy. A pretty standard funk groove PLUS, wait for it…Cowbell! There are some fun solo opportunities and we have suggested solos written out to help your players get started improvising. The trombone solo on the 2nd verse is written down an octave. He just played it up because he could. Your lead trombone player will love this arrangement. It’s his chance to shine!
INSTRUMENTATION:2 trumpets, 2 trombones, 2 saxes and rhythm
ADDITIONAL INSTRUMENTATION:Flute 1 & 2, Oboe, Clarinet 1 & 2, Violin 1 & 2, Viola, Cello and Bass
A written out piano part and bass part are provided. Some tutorial videos for your drummer are available on our YouTube channel. We also have written out suggested solos for any of the ad lib solo sections in case your players can’t improvise.
You can listen to this arrangement below:
Go ahead, listen to the intro and then say, “More cowbell!”
