Jazz ensemble (5-4-4-4 with optional 10 brass) - Grade 5
Composed by Pat Metheny and Lyle Mays. Arranged by Bob Curnow. The Pat Metheny Big Band Series. Concert Fusion, Celtic. Score and set of parts. Published by Sierra Music (S1.SMP-220).

Item Number: S1.SMP-220

Bob Curnow is well known for his orchestrations of Pat Metheny's music, and this arrangement will fit right in with The First Circle and Minuano. This is the last cut on the CD Imaginary Day by the Pat Metheny Group. Curnow's chart is faithful to the Metheny/Mays composition, and it is nine and a half minutes of big band excitement. There is solo space for piano and trumpet. The piece opens and closes with a tip of the hat to a Celtic style of music. The harmonies and meter changes are reminiscent of the well known The First Circle. Soprano saxophone doubles required. 5-4-4-4 (optional 10 brass).
