"The Back Room Romp (A Contrapuntal Stomp)"

as performed by Rex Stewart and His 52nd Street Stompers
Instrumentation: Ellington 7-pc
Level: 3
Notes: Back Room Romp is basically a simple blues in Ab, but there is a twist: the head is a series of building independent lines, thus a "Contrapuntal Stomp." Every horn player gets a chorus. The lead trumpet part is a bit of a blow, but this was written for longtime Ellington sideman, trumpeter Rex Stewart. Another level 3 factor: the alto often hits high written Eb.
