The Work Song

“The Work Song” was composed by jazz trumpter Nat Adderley (brother of Julian “Cannonball” Adderley). It first appeared as the title cut on his 1960 album. The tune was given lyrics and covered the following year by Oscar Brown Jr. on his album “Sin And Soul…and then some” and has become a standard in both vocal and instrumental forms.

Versions exist by many artists. It was recorded by Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass and the Ventures.

My version is instrumental guitar rock, but is not based on anyone else’s arrangements.
