Espoo You (arr. Ryan Middagh)
Espoo You is a medium swing chart that can be opened up to feature any member of the jazz ensemble. This tune was written after hearing the great tenor saxophonist, Sonny Rollins, in Finland while on the road with Bela Fleck & the Flecktones. Espoo You has a challenging sax soli to feature the sax section. Standard jazz ensemble instrumentation (8 brass) with no doubles. (Level III)
You can hear Espoo You in a small group setting on Jeff’s ‘Commonality’ CD or on his Jeff Coffin & the Mu’tet Play-Along (2016 release).
