Hutchinson - Blues and Rhythm Changes for Alto Saxophone and Bassoon -
Blues and Rhythm Changes is a fascinating composition for a rather unusual combination of instruments. The first movement, Blues, follows blues form and is based on the interval of a fourth. The second movement, Rhythm Changes, follows the chord progression from George Gershwin’s “I Got Rhythm” and is based on the interval of a third.
A definite crowd-pleaser and a challenge for the players as well! Alternate parts are included for Clarinet and Baritone Saxophone in order to increase the flexibility of this great piece!
