A contemporary jazz big band piece with a Piazolla-esque atmosphere. Features the lead trombone and alto saxophone in the opening A sections, which explode into an uplifting and passionate B section. The middle of the piece features a piano solo (fully written in the score but could equally be improvised to good effect).
Instrumentation: 2 alto saxophones, 2 tenor saxophones, 1 baritone saxophone, 4 trumpets in B flat, 3 tenor trombones, 1 bass trombone, piano, guitar, double bass, drum kit.
Duration: 4 min.
Difficulty: Advanced — Trombone and saxophone sections have the trickiest parts
Commission note: Commissioned by ConneXion Big Band.
