Doxy - arr. Michael Sweeney (Grade 1.5)
Arranged in a medium swing/shuffle style, here is a very easy version of this jazz standard by Sonny Rollins that maintains the style and feel of the original. Featuring a mix of tutti playing and call-and-response scoring, this is a great way to introduce a jazz legend to your young players. There is a written or ad lib solo for any trumpet or alto sax, and the shout chorus features a dialogue between the ensemble and drums.
Enjoy great flexibility with the Discovery Jazz series! Playable with 3 saxes, 2 trumpets, 1 trombone, piano and drums; includes optional parts for flute, clarinet, F horn and tuba.
