Mac Daddy Grip****
As recorded by Derrick Gardner & The Jazz Prophets on the Owl Studios release “A Ride To The Other Side” (OWL00121), this original composition is straight out of the “Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers” playbook. A strong shuffle feel is required to “kick” the background figures for the Trombone, Tenor Sax and Trumpet solos and an intricate Ensemble Soli. A musical excerpt from the melody used in a humorous manner as a background figure to support the Bass solo at the end of the arrangement. When the Jazz Prophets perform this piece, everyone leaves the stage while the bassist is soloing, then returns to play the short musical excerpt, and then we leave the stage again as the bassist solo continues.
