Recorded by the Ashley Alexander Big Band in 1985 on the album Powerslide (Pausa), this alto sax feature opens in a beautiful rock ballad style before launching into an irresistible double-time samba. The solo part includes written lines for the opening and ending sections with an improvised section (64 bars) between. Rhythm section parts are partially notated with chords cued. Duration 4:45.
