Phat Kat composed by Victor Lopez. Jazz Ensemble. Jazz Ensemble. Young Jazz Ensemble. Grade 2. Conductor Score & Parts. 61 pages. Published by Belwin Music (AP.JEM03015).
Commissioned by the Sacred Heart Jazz Ensemble in Salina, Kansas and director Milton Allen, this Victor López original is exciting and challenging, yet playable…and fun to play. Victor put those ingredients together and cooked them at grade 2. You may even hear a musical quote from a well-known Latin hit from the past. Contrasting ensemble sections, no improvised solos, and a hot line for baritone sax are but a few of the distinctive elements that allow the Latin experience to come to life. First trumpet range up to written G above the staff. Check this one out!
