Doxy is an easy jazz original by Sonny Rollins. It’s one of the first tunes that many jazz musicians learn.
Ray Brown also wrote a contrafact over the changes to Doxy that is worth learning. Ray Brown’s tune is called “FSR,” which allegedly stands for “For Sonny Rollins.” We don’t have a link to FSR, as it’s fairly difficult to find, but you can look it up on Grooveshark.com. “FSR” can be found on Ray Brown’s album “Bam Bam Bam.”

    • Hey Eric!

      That was a pretty fun trip. Nothing like traveling Europe while playing music! Good ol’ Doc Willis and his mission trips. I’ll never forget being on TV there billed as an American “Jazz Comble.” Evidently the word “Combo” isn’t in the Portuguese language…

    • Hi guys, very good hight school band. You mean Madeira, the island form Portugal? When was this concert you mention?
