Description About the Composer
(8 Brass) Composed for the Johns Hopkins University Jazz Ensemble, this composition begins as a gentle "Martian" tango featuring a sentimental melody in the soprano saxophone. The baritone saxophone is then featured in a duet with the drums. An open blowing section follows where the performers are encouraged to create their own backgrounds or collectively improvise. Scales and chords are provided in every part. Afterwards, a fast section commences with fleeting references to Beautiful Dreamer leading to a 14-bar minor blues featuring the guitar. The chart concludes with a brief return to the opening tango. 5 Saxes (SATTB), 8 Brass, 4 Rhythm.
