Blues For Sakis

Shuffle-Blues, featuring all sections
Duration ca. 10 min

The basie-style blues arrangement provides a medium difficult feature-chorus for each section, saxophones, trumpets and trombones. In between there is a lot of space for soloists. The ironic coda cites many other well-known blues heads. It´s a fun piece, offering the occasion to present all members of the band.
