Default Soft Winds - Septet

"Soft Winds" was arranged in 1962. It's a fairly simple blues for septet. Measures 13 - 24 are bare bones, letting the horn players and the rhythm section work out who does what. I have set the road map to only play this section once, as all that is there is bass and drums. Then, it's back to the top, go to the coda after measure 11 and close out.

The cymbal rolls at the end don't sound too great, but the drummer would do a better job.
