For Roy (Big Band Arrangement)
"For Roy” big band edition! This soulful bop is a tribute to legendary trumpeter and composer Roy Hargrove, a direct musical influence to Huntertones as well as the composer/trumpeter Jon Lampley. The song elicits the feeling of bouncing and gliding at the same time, held together by a tight band groove and elevated by a spirited brass vs. reeds soli feature that is a direct transcription of Lampley’s fiery playing. No doubt this tune will be added to the list of instant head-nod big band classics.
