If you are looking for a fun piece for your younger players, you need to check this one out. The highest note is the Eb in the top space of the staff and all of the parts are of equal demands. The middle features an open section for the players to improvise over an interesting vamp. Each player can take a solo and the background will sustain the chords. I have included written solos in case the players need some ideas to play. I have also added all of the articulations to make your players sound like pros……at least in the articulation area.
