(Level IV) Blues on Hawthorne Road is an original by Dan himself in the style of Count Basie to
offer genuine big band music most suitable for advanced high school and college
bands. This F blues features
a simple but memorable melody supported by a swing shuffle feel, an absolutely
essential style to be known in jazz repertoire. Two “sparse” choruses feature fragments of themes and
motifs between sections, then a solo section backed by bluesy background
figures, followed by an exciting shout chorus. Hawthorne Road is the home of Whitworth University’s
Music Department in Spokane, Washington.
