Composed by Jim McNeely. This edition: Trumpet range to F6. Swing, Groove, Latin, Funk. Score and set of parts. Published by UNC Jazz Press (NC.889).

Item Number: NC.889

(Level IV) A composition written for Dave Liebman with the West German Radio Big Band, this piece created quite a stir at the IAJE convention in Miami (with the Miami University Jazz Ensemble). The tempo and groove continually shift between a slow funk, medium Latin, and medium swing feel. The solo soprano part is in addition to the regular 5-part sax section, and employs the kind of modern chromatic harmony associated with Dave. This chart is more difficult for its harmonic and rhythmic conception than for its notes. 9 Brass.
