Description:

A rare and unusual song from the Ted Heath book, Heading North is a 1957 composition and is a medium tempo (at 130 bpm) minor blues chart. It kicks off with a solo piano 12 bar lick (written), joined after by unison bones with sax answerbacks. Saxes then take the soli, answered by the trombones leading to a 24 bar muted trumpet solo (chord based - scored on all 4 trumpet parts) with sax and bone backing figures. Piano comes back in and the chart finishes of with a big tutti shout chorus. This is a fairly straightforward chart to play. We have graded it as Medium because the Trumpet solo is ad lib. Other than that the ranges are moderate and the chart is very playable. No sax doubles.
