Brawl on Duval Street is one of James L. King III’s most popular pieces. This arrangement was made at the request of a teacher who wanted a simplified version. This arrangement has a different bass line but retains the excitement of the original. It is an excellent recital piece and a great piece for working on walking bass lines and chromatic scales.
