8 Ball, Side Pocket***
This is an original composition and arrangement recorded by Derrick Gardner & The BIG dig! BAND on the 2020 Impact Jazz release “Still I Rise.” This medium tempo AABA swinger is in the stylings of the Count Basie Orchestra and the composition itself is a contrafact on the Freddie Green original “Corner Pocket.” It features a Tenor Saxophone solo w/ background figures and a Piano solo. There is also a one chorus soft ensemble soli section in the Basie style and then a loud ensemble shout bringing the arrangement to it’s end with the classic Basie piano “splanks.”
