This great tune is by Toronto trumpet player and composer Jason Logue. It’s a swinging chart that’s very much a throwback to the classic Blue Note era of the 50s and 60s . The catchy melody is dripping with style written for trumpets and tenor saxes.

This is another Jason Logue. It’s a driving rock tune harmonically inspired by the Miles Davis classic So What. The melodies and solis slither through some tasty harmonic ideas and is balanced by being rhythmically simple. It features solos for any sax and any brass player and the improvisation is only over two chords so it’s great for any level of soloist.
