Across The Channel by Bill Liston. For jazz ensemble. Jazz Journey Series. Funk Ballad. Medium. Score and set of parts. Duration 4 minutes, 20 seconds. Published by Kendor Music Inc (KN.61006).
Why not feature your alto sax soloist on this funky ballad for advancing groups? The innovative harmony during the bridge and the double-time samba section add lots of depth to this engaging piece. Ample unison passages serve as an excellent vehicle to teach dynamic restraint, and the soloist will have plenty of room to stretch out. A guitar chord chart by Jim Greeson is included, and rhythm section parts are notated. Duration 4:20.
