Like a trip to a blues bar, this Buddy Guy gets the listener smiling and grooving, and the power of a vocal jazz ensemble to deliver that kind of style and gritty nuance is put on display in this fun chart. Ironically performable without guitar (famously Buddy’s instrument), the piano part for this chart will still be useful for a guitarist available to add that key element to the texture (sadly not in the demo, incidentally). Space for scat or instrumental solos with vocal backgrounds, an a cappella break with a groovin’ bass part…this chart’s a big closer just waiting to happen!
