Phat Kat 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 Lopez original is exciting and challenging, yet playableâ€¦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!
