Fluters' Ball by Henry Mancini. Arranged by Joe Reisman. For flute quartet (4 flutes with piano and optional guitar, bass & drums). Grade 4. Score and set of parts. Duration 4 minutes. Published by Kendor Music Inc (KN.14540).
Recorded by Henry Mancini on the RCA album Experiment In Terror, this theme in an easy swing style includes ad lib solo choruses for 1st Flute and 2nd Flute. The piano part also includes an 8-bar ad lib solo, giving the flutes a well-timed rest before the closing section. Using the optional parts is a great idea for groups with access to rhythm section personnel. Duration 4:00.
