5 sax, 4tpt., 4 tbn., guitar piano, bass, drums, opt. marimba. Odd-meter rock, Afro-Cuban. Tempo: mm=120 (slightly faster during 12/8 section). Tpt range Ab (1st ledger line). Soloist: alto 1, tenor 1, guitar, drums. Guitar featured throughout, sets groove in opening 7/4 statement, evolves to call/response with ensemble, then solo. Backgrounds on cue, solo section can repeat for other soloists. Getting in and out of the Afro-Cuban section from the 7/4 is a rhythmic challenge. While not a high lead trumpet part, the brass parts require powerand precision. Difficult.
