Salt Marsh Rag (for 5 wind instruments & jazz rhythm section) has an early jazz feeling and a good amount of humor. It is meant to be fun and something that is distinctly different for performers and audiences. While this rag draws upon American roots music and is intended to sound old, there is a playful juxtaposition of old and new. The score was originally conceived for woodwind quintet (with alto flute). Alternate parts are provided for an assortment of commonly-used wind instruments. In this way, the piece can be performed by many combinations of instruments such as little big band, brass ensemble, sax section, clarinet ensemble, woodwind quintet, or a creative blend of tone colors. As another possibility, two (or more) musicians can be used on each wind instrument part. This option of having doubled parts -- with either same or different instruments on a part -- is an easy way for larger ensembles to perform this music.

PARTS: The set of parts is available at SALT MARSH RAG PARTS (S0.84813).
