Day 111- “Soli at 27”

For my picture today, I’ve decided to use a shot of some music that we’re playing in Lab IV, one of the UNC jazz bands. This piece is  “Take the A Train” by Billy Strayhorn, and arranged by Sammy Nestico. I’m  a pretty big fan of the piece, it’s fun to play. Featured specifically in this photo is the saxophone soli at 27. For those not familiar with jazz lingo, a soli is when a section plays a part of the piece all together, usually in unison.

I like the photo for the focus. I was torn between this one and another photo that showed the main theme of the song, but decided that this one was more artistic.
