Out of Town - SSAA or SATB with Rhythm Section - Level 5
This is a burning fast, wordless, very challenging modern bebop head as recorded by the Yellowjackets on Four Corners. The melody may be divided up into several small groups for variety and relief! Other than the unison and two-part head, there is a "shout chorus" and an improv section that may be opened up. Your rhythm section is key to making this one work in light of the burning swing tempo (almost straight-eighth) that must be maintained. Well worth the hard work it takes to learn if your group is really ready for a challenge!
