Description

Instrumental, more modern jazz conception, some Flamenco influence in the groove (Solea por Bulería) similar to (3/4) feel. Easy going waltz feel, melodic material reappears in a faster 6/8 version at K and leads to an adrenalized sax soli and a 4/4 “So what” type modal swing solo section. Lyrical, various different textures flowing into each other, fun to engage audience in an evolving musical landscape.

*Also available for reduced format big band: 3sx/3trp/2tb (see here)
