||"The Pearls" by Jelly Roll Morton was arranged for Concert Band by Frank Ferriano in 2004.
The Pearls for Concert Band: Like Joplin "Jelly Roll" Mortonís
compositions can be challenging to perform, Again the key is not to
play it too fast. There are a few more articulation markings than in
the Joplin Rag. Conductors have a little more freedom in interpretation
in performing The Pearls. The arranger suggests listening to various
versions of the piece for ideas of how you would like to perform it.
This has also been performed by the Capitol City Band with
enthusiastic audience response.
