This virtuosic work is for standard British brass band forces and contains three contrasting movements. The first movement entitled 'March' is a majestic slow march with a trio section in 3/4 time. The second movement 'Blues' is romantic with many solos accompanied by rich jazz harmonies and decoration. The final movement 'Tarantella' is a very fast movement with all instruments tested in technique and ensemble playing, with a prominent drum kit.
