||A great chart by the late, great Frank Mantooth. A must for collectors of Frank?s charts. Scored for 5 saxes, 5 trumpets, 5 trombones, guitar, piano, bass and drums. Commissioned by John Hattery for the Knox College Jazz Ensemble in 1999.
Latin style with half note = 120. Melody stated by a quartet (Alto 1, Tenor 1, Trpt. 2, Trom. 2). Big solo spots for Trom.1, Piano. The writing is wonderful, as usual, and Tooth comes through again. This is a standard for libraries.
