Well, here's another incredibly challenging arrangement from the pen of Rob McConnell! This chart begins in a small group setting playing the tune Indiana with a Dixieland feel. After half a chorus the rhythm section, trumpet and alto kick in playing Donna Lee over the top of it. The small group is to fade away, giving way to the bebop head. The arrangement continues on at a brisk tempo. Featured are solos for alto saxophone and trumpet. In typical McConnell fashion there are some great ensemble passages. Towards the end of the arrangement the ensemble is split with half playing the Dixieland feel Indiana superimposed over the Donna Lee melody! If your band is looking for a challenge or something to play at a festival, this is it! Ranges: Trumpet 1: to F6; Trombone 1: to C5.
