To give the chops a break, slip in a rhythm section only song, or do a
rhythm & solo horn number (letting the other guys rest).  Gives the audience
a rest, also, with a change of sound.

Someone mentioned being worried about the rhythm guys not getting a break.
Don't worry about them.  If you've ever ridden in a bus or car after a gig
with a drummer, for instance, you will know they just keep on keeping the
beat for ever & ever!  Thumpety, thump, thump on anything they can get their
hands on.  So, don't worry about them.  They like it!   :>
