“Costa Del Sol” (Coast of the Sun) creates a musical panorama of the beautiful Mediterranean coastline of the Málaga province in southern Spain. Based upon series of chord progressions common to generations of Spanish flamenco guitarist, David Shaffer has crafted a spirited and beautiful setting of three authentic Spanish folk dance forms, the Corrida, Jota and the Fandango. This energetic and captivating composition opens with a fiery statement reminiscent of the traditional Spanish bullfights. A quick folk dance in ¾ (Jota) follows, utilizing traditional Spanish percussion. The middle section is introduced with a lush alto saxophone solo leading into a lyrical folk dance (Fandango). The fiery Jota returns in two separate but distinct forms to conclude the piece. An excellent contest piece, “Costa Del Sol” will captivate your audiences with the beautiful imagery of the Spanish countryside.
