Perfect for lighter chamber music programming or as a spirited encore, this setting for standard quintet features solid jazz writing throughout. Best results will be achieved by observing all articulations and dynamic markings so as to support, not compete with the melodic motives. Maintaining a steady pulse between the 3/4 and 4/4 metric transitions is equally crucial.
