Right Thing – Rob Bargad
A very swinging song that just "feels right." It combines major and minor tonalities in several key centers, grooving all the while. Second parts are available for the quintet arrangement.

There is no intro. The drum solo is launched by a shout chorus which on the recording is played twice. In this chorus, two A sections of mostly rhythmic figures are followed by eight measures of drums. After the out head once, there is a coda which repeats the A section four times, with a gradual crescendo (on the recording, the guitar solos over this starting the second time), followed by the first phrase of the B section ending on E7.
About the arrangement: Second parts are available for the two-horn arrangement. The tenor sax plays a countermelody that fills in the long notes of the A section melody. In the B and C sections the horns are mostly in unison, with the tenor breaking off to follow some of the rhythm section figures. The shout chorus has the horns voiced in thirds, with occasional passages in unison. On the third and fourth repeats of the coda, the trumpet takes the melody an octave up; this is indicated in our lead sheets as well as the Concert Condensed Score.
