[music] fresh roots (peppy 12-bar indolatin jazz in 7/8 time in F minor)

fleshed out the theme i was playing with the other day (previous post) – feels nice to have a complete song in the middle of a lot of other drafts!

fun 7/8 groove in F minor. orchestrated with rhodes organ, timbales, drumset, 2 trumpet parts, 2 trombone parts, and tenor sax. includes 12-bar rhodes solo followed by 12 bars for listener to practice improvisation. written with musescore 2; audio file is export from musescore with a little reverb added in audacity. play along! have fun. 🙂
