Pick Up The Pieces is a song by the Average White Band from their eponymous album, AWB. It is essentially an instrumental apart from the song title being sung at several points in the song. It features, arguably, the most instantly recognisable grooves in funk music. The song was released in Britain on July 1974 but failed to make an impression. When the album was released in America in October 1974, radio stations started to pick up on the song and, on 22nd February 1975, the groove went to the top of the US singles chart. It then charted in the UK and climbed to number six. Phil Collins commissioned a full big band version from Arif Mardin who produced the original album for the AWB. In the key of F minor.

Customer Rating very good version

Customer Rating A really exciting but challenging version of the song. It should be noted that the improvised solo sections are long (for example the alto solo runs to 128 bars. Whilst the harmonies for these sections are quite static, they will present your soloists with a challenge and may need to be shortened if they are not entirely confident with their ability to create an interesting line from the chord symbols.
