Up Tempo Latin and Swing
As recorded by Mats Holmquist & Dave Liebman Big Band on the album "A tribute to Wayne Shorter" (Summit/MAMA Records).
Soprano sax feature with solos for drums, soprano and piano. After stating the theme Holmquist takes us into the drum solo right away. After a while there are horn backgrounds in an unusual manner. The latter part of both the soprano solo and the entire piece uses clearly minimalist textures a' la Steve Reich et al, and builds to big climaxes. A very exciting up-tempo chart that surely will raise the pulse of the audience!
”The finest tribute to Wayne Shorter on the market today! 5*****”
