||"New Guy" was written in 2013 by John Yao. Featured on his CD "Flip Flop".
"New Guy" is a piece for those not afraid to take a journey through a variety of harmonic, rhythmic and melodic territory. This adventurous medium swinger features two different progressions for Trumpet and Trombone soloists who kick off the piece by trading over a mixed meter vamp. Features a 5th trombone part that can be adapted for a featured saxophonist of your choice. Influenced by Bob Brookmeyer, this piece sheds new light on the concept of drums trading with the ensemble leading to a shout chorus that climaxes on a high note that melts back into a reduced version of the theme that finishes off the work. 5 Saxes, 4 Trumpets, 5 Trombones, 3 Rhythm.
