Such Sweet Thunder Music
Sidewalks Of New York
This Gay Nineties song was corny before Ellington was born, but in his hands, it’s a typical swing chart with the usual Ellington touches of genius. Nothing difficult here. It’s all about playing with style. Great sax soli. Lead trumpet to high C.
Style: Medium Swing
Solos: Clarinet, Trombone, Tenor Sax, Alto Sax, Bari Sax
