A cool swing groove on the ride cymbal opens this jazzy piece for first year band students. With the low brass and woodwinds providing a driving walking bass line, the trumpets, saxes, and upper woodwinds trade the melody effectively throughout the piece.
Solid scoring and a strong rhythmic foundation allow the band to really lay back and put themselves into the "cruise control" setting! This is a great learning tool introducing elements of the swing and jazz genres to the young band.
