Stede (Big Band Arrangement)
"Stede" for big band is an exciting 6/8 shuffle from Huntertones latest EP, Engine Co. Written by trombonist Chris Ott, the tune draws inspiration from a driving pop shuffle feel underneath a floating, folk-like, sea shanty melody as the main theme. Filled with rhythmic and stylistic twists and turns, “Stede” takes listeners on a musical journey evoking the spirit of funk and fusion artists like Fred Wesley and Al Jarraeu, as well as pop artists like Dave Matthews and Michael Jackson.
