Puente Arriba! takes a trip to Mexico, opening with a bravura solo trumpet cadenza before the bass sets up the samba groove. The saxes enter with the melody and are answered by the brass in counterpoint. Lots of unison writing provides power and confidence while energy and orchestration continue to build throughout the melody and provide a strong send off to the trombone and trumpet soloists. The trumpet range is to written B-flat. An interlude follows the solos and leads to a sax soli and shout section before returning to the final "A" section and a rousing finish. Dynamic and exciting throughout!
