Afro Blue

Series: Jazz Ensemble Library Artist: John Coltrane Composer: Mongo Santamaria Arranger: Michael Philip Mossman

Level: 4

Jazz Ensemble Library – Grade 4

Made famous by John Coltrane, but treated here in a more traditional Afro-Latin style, this is something a little different for jazz ensemble. As with all Mossman charts, the rhythm section is meticulously notated to insure the correct style. The 3/4 pattern throughout draws heavily on African influences and the melody is masterfully passed from section to section. A single pentatonic scale works for the solo section making this a wonderful vehicle for involving many soloists.
