||"Uptick" was written by Bill Simenson in 2015. This is a Swing style chart, but very different from the usual jazz chart. Almost a T.V. theme quality. Soprano Sax feature. Some high Sop. ranges. Use of brushes and mallets on T.T.’s Interesting pyramid dissonance as backgrounds. Very nice , tight ensemble scoring after the solo. The composer writes: "Uptick (from “Big Alpaca” by the Bill Simenson Orchestra)
“Uptick’ was written for our 2015 Twin Cities Jazz Festival performance to feature Pete Whitman on soprano sax.
Instrumentation: Soprano Sax, Alto Sax, Tenor Sax 1&2, Baritone Sax, Trumpet 1-4, Trombone 1-3, Bass Trombone, Guitar, Piano, Bass, Drums." Also available as a PDF.
