Clean start : small jazz ensemble
by Louise Denson (1998)
This is a boogaloo based on the 12-bar blues form. It makes use of pentatonics and sus chords, as well as extended harmony. It could be performed without the harmony line (tenor sax part), and without Latin percussion; however both of these parts contribute to a fuller interpretation of the work.
Instrumentation: Trumpet or alto saxophone lead, tenor sax, piano, bass, drumkit, congas/Latin percussion (optional).
Duration: 10 min.
Difficulty: Medium — Familiarity with Afro-Cuban clave desirable.
Commission note: Written with support from the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec, Canada
