Work Overview

This is a very basic 12 bar blues arrangement with a lot of unison passages. The solo section is quite easy and has backgrounds that can be cued in to add a little more colour and drama to the piece. Blues Shuffle would be a great piece for beginner ensembles as it will come together quite quickly and features open, modern voicings in the ensemble parts.
