Description

Originally commissioned for Vern Sielert and the Oregon Jazz Ensemble, The Song in Mind is an energetic Brazilian-influenced chart with plenty for your rhythm section to chew on. This chart starts with twisting unison lines for trumpet, flute, clarinet and guitar, ends with a full ensemble fugue exposition, and features a trumpet solo throughout. A strong trumpet soloist, strong woodwind doubles, and an understanding of Brazilian claves and swing are needed to make this chart work but it yields an extremely rewarding closer.

Instrumentation

Standard Big Band (5/4/4/4) + Solo Trumpet
