Blue 16 (score & parts)

A 16-bar minor blues form is where this chart gets its name. With several straight-ahead big band shouts and a contrapuntal treatment of the theme statement, this chart has a lot to offer a jazz band. Especially rewarding is a virtuoso soli for the saxophones and guitar. A recording of Blue 16 can be heard on the CD, ENTER AUTUMN by the David Caffey Jazz Orchestra.
