Gordon Goodwin - Alfred Publishing Belwin Division
Bass and guitar kick off this original Gordon Goodwin chart with a captivating rhythmic pattern before the full ensemble settles in with the funky melody. There's plenty of ensemble writing, some in unison and some in harmony, and solo space for all winds with suggested or improv solos. The lead trumpet range goes to written G-sharp on top of the staff, the tempo is around 115 beats per minute, and optional parts are included for expanded instrumentations. This is accessible Gordon Goodwin material that is right in the pocket for this grade level! Our highest recommendation!
