||"Jamaican Holiday" was written in 2011 by Dominic Spera. Premiered by Bloomington (IN) North High School Jazz Ensemble under the direction of Janis Stockhouse. This begins as a Calypso style chart. Happy music. Added Latin perc. necessary. Switch to Mambo style after open solo section. then to Hard Rock. Another style switch to Afro-Cuban to Swing and back to Calypso on Piano solo. Drum solo then DS and out. This chart works well thru all the style changes. Great learning tool for your band.
