King Cobra

Here’s a hypnotic Herbie Hancock composition from his 1963 record My Point of View.  As you can see, there is barely any melody, the chord changes are the focal point of the song (and in my opinion the whole album). This lead sheet contains only the trumpet line, the tenor and trombone harmonies are in the score below.
