||"The Sassy Strut" was written in 2007 by Jamey Simmons. It was commissioned by the DDFVPA for the Phoenix Middle School Jazz Ensemble (Delavan, WI), Mark Butzow, Director. This is a clever latin style chart (Cha-Cha flavor) . Ranges are easy and tempo (120) moderate. Solo spots for Alto 1;Trpt. 2; Drums. Nice counter melodies and counterpoint. Well written as usual by Jamey Simmons. CD/mp3 available.
