Teaching Concepts: syncopated rhythmic patterns, mixed meter, dynamics, rhythmic independence, blend/balance, form reading (D.S. al Coda)
Are you looking for a different overture for your band? Beginning with standard flourishes and pleasant rhythmic melody, this one changes quickly to Latin-style through the use of odd meter (5/4 written as 3/4+2/4), syncopated rhythms and handclaps. The lovely B-section is full of blue notes and harmonic motion a-la Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue. A percussion intro. and fanfare lead back to the A-section and coda. This one's full of surprises!
