This is a great contest/concert selection for band’s at this grade level. Once the notes get “under the fingers” it swings hard and shows off the whole band. The ranges and rhythms are very reasonable, but the excitement generated is off the charts! The intro is a piano vamp, followed by the saxes playing the melody in unison. The trumpets then join the altos, while the bones and tenors play some background punches. The bones and saxes trade off playing the bridge, and then full ensemble plays up to the open solo section. Following the solos, everything quiets way down and the gradual buildup to a real flag-waver of an ending begins
