Filthy McNasty

Arranged by John LaBarbera

Grade 4

Jazz Ensemble Conductor Score & Parts



In Horace Silver’s own words, this sassy, bluesy shuffle with a bebop-style melody portrays “a mythical man of rather dubious character.” An alto, trumpet and trombone trio give the opening and closing presentations of the theme, and each of those players carries a full-length solo chorus in between. A sustained band chord with ad lib flourishes by the trio brings everything to a dramatic, satisfying close. Rhythm section parts are partially notated with chords cued. Duration 5:40.
Style: Medium Shuffle
