The Mooche

The Mooche

Series: Young Jazz Classics Format: Softcover Score & Parts Composers: Duke Ellington, Irving Mills Arranger: Mark Taylor

Level: 3

Composed in 1928, Ellington's The Mooche was characterized as “jungle style” at the time thanks to the unique instrumentation and rhythmic style. Mark Taylor's outstanding version for younger players alternates between the Latin styles salsa and mambo, and features solo space for tenor sax and trombone. Unique and effective!
