||"Cal and Al" was written in in 2004 by Aaron Strang. This is a well written chart for Jazz Ensemble.
"Cal and Al" is a lively and clever swing chart written to celebrate the birth of the composerís son. The chart is based on a simple, playful, and catchy melody which is combined with hard swinging grooves and tight harmonies. Melodic material is passed throughout the ensemble keeping all the parts interesting. While the ranges are moderate, the chart calls for intermediate endurance in the brass. There is solo space for both trombone and trumpet.
