(Level V) Composed for and premiered by my ensemble The 804 Jazz Bones at the Tromblow’in Festival 2012 in Virginia. A funk tune in D minor, playable by as few as four performers or as a larger choir. Everyone gets a piece of the melody or bass line at some point of the chart. The lead part doesn’t rise above A above the staff. The provided drum set part is optional. A bass trombonist skilled in mixed meter is required. Solo space is provided for Trombones 2 and 4 (with cues in other parts); but the chart performs wonderfully even if no one solos, as the stop-times and riffs make for excellent passages on their own. It can easily be opened up for additional soloists, including non-trombone guests. Works as an opener or closer. I can provide mp3 tracks of individual parts with click track for personal practice. The title of the work not only compliments my ensemble colleagues but was an impromptu reference to me by another colleague when one day he saw me with a few days’ growth of beard.Trombone Choir plus Drums
