||"Lunar Distance" was written for an intermediate jazz ensemble in 2005 by Frank Ferriano. These pieces are the first in a series of pieces that Frank would like to do for training younger jazz ensembles. In this case they are based on the chord progressions with some substitute chords of familiar standards. There are standard jazz articulations and figures throughout. There are solos that are written, but just as guide. The piano parts are fully written with standard jazz voicings with the chord cymbals. The 1st trumpet part rarely does not go above G. (trombones -F) Lunar Distance is based on How High The Moon and includes some of the Charlie Parker substitute chords from Orinthology. The first two choruses are in a bossa nova rhythm which will aid the younger ensemble to this play in a laid back cooler style. The last chorus is in a medium swing.
