Dig This Mallow

Music of Sally Greenaway

This fun big band piece is a cross between a swung version of a New Orleans Feel and a standard swing feel. It utilises all the cool techniques used from the swing era, like shakes, plunger mutes and trombone slides! Solos are open - over a blues progression. This is a crowd pleaser chart and a bit of fun for the band.
