Blue Rondo a la Turk
Dave Brubeck/arr. Kris Berg
- Alfred Publishing Co., Inc.
The essence of the original is captured here with this updated version of Dave Brubeck's classic tour de force in a big-band setting! The meter alternates from a 9/8 straight Afro-Cuban feel to a more relaxed 12/8 swing style, and they blend perfectly with Brubeck's rhythmic patterns. There's solo space for alto 1, trumpet 2 and drums, and lead trumpet goes up to written C above the staff. This is an exceptional chart for festival or concert!
