Night Owl | James Brady


Funky, shuffling New Orleans second line groove, layering increasingly colourful blue lines

Line-up: Big Band
Duration: 4′ 50″
Difficulty: Challenging
Sample Score: Score


Night Owl takes a funky, shuffling New Orleans second line groove and layers up increasingly colourful blues lines until the whole band is flying.
After open solos, the second trumpet is featured in a stop time section, followed by a chance for the drummer to shine as the band keeps time, clapping on 2 and 4 – a great chance to get the audience involved!
