A happy, upbeat tune from South African jazz pianist Abdullah Ibrahim, arranged for standard brass quintet.

The standard required is intermediate, approximately grades 4-6.

Ranges (written pitch):
C4 = middle C
Trumpet in Bb 1: E4 to B5 (one optional C6)
Trumpet in Bb 2: C4 to F5
Horn in F: G3 to D5 (one optional F5)
Trombone/Euphonium: G2 to C4
Bass Trombone/Tuba: F1 to G3

All parts contain a mix of melodic and accompanimental material. The bass trombone/tuba part often carries a bass line, but also contains melodic material. There are brief solo moments, especially for the horn and bass trombone/tuba. All parts contain quite a bit of syncopation, so this arrangement is a great way to get your students to develop their sense of pulse in a fun way. The music is mostly diatonic but with occasional hints of chromaticism and jazz harmony to add some flavour.

The arrangement last approximately 3 minutes, but can be shortened to about 2m30s by taking the optional cut to letter G as marked.

This arrangement is also available in other formats including 4 trumpetsand 4 bass clef brass instruments. For details of these and other arrangements by James Brady go to:
