Funkmeister Wally Minko scores again with his arrangement of Rich Willey’s How ’Bout That? This easy-going 32-bar funk tune has solo space for tenor sax and your choice of another soloist over the fairly simple chord changes.
Written for five saxophones, five trumpets, four trombones, piano, guitar, bass, drums and optional percussionist. There are no doubles for any of the wind instruments in this chart.
The lead trumpet only goes up to two leger-line high C. This tune is right around Grade 4. Chart length is 152 written bars, tempo is ♩ = 90 and the score is 19 pages. (Wally indicates the tempo can be anywhere from ♩ = 86 to ♩ = 110.)
Our big band charts are now available only as PDF files for you to print out yourself (at half the price that we used to charge for printed parts).
Upon completion of your order you will receive a download link via an email receipt for your purchase.
