An aggressive and hardboppish up-tempo powerhouse for the classic pairing of trumpet and tenor. Highlights include a clever intro/send-off to the chart, a “mooing” trombone interlude and an intense shout section which features the drummer soloing around powerful ensemble figures. A showcase for the ensemble as well as trumpet & tenor soloists, The Stakeout makes a great opener or closer. Performed by the New York All-State Jazz Ensemble. Recorded by the West Point Band’s Jazz Knights on "At First Light."
