Big band - Medium to difficult
Composed by James Polk. Concept Music Series. Score and parts. Published by Walrus Music Publishing (WA.50631).

Item Number: WA.50631

5 sax, 4 tpt., 4 tbn., guitar piano, bass, drums. Medium tempo swing feel. Tempo: mm=110. Tpt range: high F#, tbn high Bb. This multi-faceted composition makes for a great swing groove, suggesting 12/8 with some perfectly placed 2/4 measures. Intro evokes the busy street sounds of Sydney, where it was written by James Polk while he was touring with the Ray Charles Orchestra as condctor/arranger. Featues piano solo and a sax soli that's not difficult but very effective. Above all, it's a swinging chart.
