Diamond Groove


Diamond Groove (Grade 3 and a half) is a 12-bar blues with a bridge and a driving uptempo swing feel. There is plenty of solo space and a trumpet soli (also cued in the saxes) to feature some nice ensemble work as well. A solid shout chorus takes it to a quiet close on the head tune. Diamond Groove was written in fond memory of Corey Diamond, commissioned by Bryan Itzkowitz and the Holmes Middle School Jazz Ensemble in 2015. The recording here was taken from a live performance at their Spring Pops Concert in April of that year.
