||"The Dune" was written by Bill Simenson in 2012. This is Swing style chart. Interesting staccato figures on into. Baritone Sax solo feature for most of the tune. Starts out Ballad feel then turns into laid back swing. Film score-ish. Nice out chorus with Saxes then Brass interplay. 6 mi. tune. Not your usual cookie cutter jazz chart. The composer writes: "The Dune (from “Big Alpaca” by the Bill Simenson Orchestra)
Written to feature baritone saxophonist Gus Sandberg, “The Dune” is a medium tempo swing tune a bit on the noir side.
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.
