Spring Wind composed by Geoff Keezer. Arranged by Geoff Keezer. For jazz ensemble (5-4-4-4 with optional vibes). Geoff Keezer Series. Swing. Grade 5. Score and set of parts. Published by Sierra Music (S1.SMP-192).
This is a drum set feature which really shows off your drummer. Steve Houghton uses this in his performances. It opens with a Cute (Hefti) - like feel (brushes and a neat, light be-bop line), goes into a Latin feel and returns to Swing. There is also solo space for trombone. As always with Geoff's charts, the music is unique, very musical and very interesting. Alto Sax 1 has a bit of flute doubling. 5-4-4-4 (opt. vibes).
