||Click to listen: Flux in a Box
"Flux in a Box" was written in 2001 by Darcy James Argue. This is a well-written chart with some challenging contrapuntal lines. Up-tempo swing.
Med.-up swing, q=240

This blisteringly intense and hard-swinging chart is heavily
contrapuntal in the style of George Russellís "All About Rosie,"
anchored by an infectiously quirky bass line and anthemic shout
choruses. There is generous solo space for alto sax and piano,
supported by long background buildups from the band.
Reed 1: Soprano Sax
Reed 2: Alto Sax (solo)
Reed 3: Tenor Sax
Reed 4: Tenor Sax
Reed 5: Bari Sax
Lead trumpet to F# (written).
