Dancing Hippo ♫ written and arranged for funk band by Rich Willey is a relaxed, easy groove that demonstrates how closely related two minor keys a tritone apart really are.
96 written measures, ♩ = 154, with fun soli section that is not too hard for most any proficient jazz player. The chord changes are fairly simple but have enough meat on the bones for the experienced improviser to really dig in there and burn.
