  • April 09, 2007 Tower of Power IS hip!

    The chart for "What is Hip?" by the legendary Tower of Power is beautifully done. This is not a beginners chart, though, because concert key is "E" and the transpositions for horns are "F#" and "C#" for alto and baritone saxes. The parts are big and easy to read (visually...

    , the music reading ability s up to you). Included are 5 master rhythm charts, score and additional parts for alto which doubles tenor #1 and trombone which is tenor #2. All told, there are the rhythm parts mentioned above, 2-trumpet parts, 2-tenor and a baritone sax part.
