In the D section the two melody instruments each have a four-measure solo fill; there are bass pedal figures in the first half of D that are also played in the solos. The guitar plays chords in the 4th and 6th measures of E; horn players playing this second part can play either the top or the second note of these voicings.
Each lead sheet shows both voices.
This Bobby Jaspar session was Bobby's first recording with Barry—the two went on to play together on many other recordings in the late '50s, including Barry's only album as a leader, "Guitar And The Wind" from 1958.
This score is great material to work on phrasing with a horn player or another guitarist for developing a strong sense of time and reading ability.
December 18, 1919 – January 13, 1983
