Brother Kenya’s Paradigm ♫ written by Rich Willey and arranged for funk band by The Amazing Wally Minko. This tune is based on the chord sequence from Brother Can You Spare A Dime and is a whole lot of fun to play.
A straight-forward set of chord changes directly from the old 1930 standard, this arrangement is 193 bars long at a suggested tempo of ♩ = 144, with a difficulty level of intermediate.
Written with solo space for tenor sax and bass trumpet with some drum fills toward the end of the soli section.
