(vocal )          


Paul Simon’s biggest solo hit from 1975. Covered by many but I didn’t hear a big band version yet. Well, here it is! It starts with the famous (written out) Steve Gadd shuffle. The verses are accompanied by the brass section. Halfway the music there is room for solo’s, in the score it is for alto but in the audio you’ll hear an electric piano. After the “Slip out the back, Jack” there is Steve Gadd again ending the piece.

Level: intermediate.
