This is a song I used to play with my highschool jazz band. At the moment I do not have access to the horns I play can play right now, so i used my keyboard to play everything but the guitar and bass tracks. I arranged this from my memory of the song and so that I could play a short improvised solo. A fried told me the original composer is George Shutack. Please feel free to comment and rate.

Did they let you play that awesome guitar solo in the jazz band? That was excellent!

No I actually played bass in my highschool jazz band so I didn't get to do any sort of melody (partially by choice). I didn't have the confidence in my playing that I do now. I love the off time feel that bassline has.

A great piece... but a very awful sound quality in this video...
I hope, you will bring the sound track to the music-comm... the quality will be much better...
5* and

Hi Richard,
F A N T A S T I C  this version !!

Message for you: If you send me at your e-mail address, I'm going to send you (after 5th october) a great surprise for you.
I ask: Do you have anyone that know Italian language and can translate an article ?
(I think you'll need a little help to read the surprise...)

Sandro Glavina is an italian composer, named L'Uomo e L'Ombra. The choice of the name derives from the title of the album "L'uomo e l'ombra" of the band "Abstract Music Nuova Esistenza", an experimental group founded by Sandro Glavina together with his friends in the mid-70s.

In the period 2009-2022, L'Uomo e L'Ombra has done 84 albums. The compositions of Sandro Glavina are partly influenced by progressive rock. Sandro has developed a personal style with many experimentations and actualizations. He offers music beyond borders by intertwining different styles in crossover with each other. Prog, psychedelia, classical, post-rock, jazz, pop are some of the influences that dissolve in ambient atmospheres, citations of contemporary music and minimalist nuances. Sandro Glavina aka L'Uomo e L'Ombra plays the music using VSTI synthesizers, keyboards and adds some loops. Sandro isn't a professional musician, composes and plays music just for fun, but his works reach a good outcome, pleasant to listen. L'UOMO E L'OMBRA
