The style is "African" Latin, 6 beats of triplets, taken in a slow three. Although this piece can be performed without extra percussion, it is greatly enhanced by them. Several Cascara or bell patterns and a conga pattern are shown at the end of the drum & percussion parts. Other rhythm instruments can be used as well (shaker, guiro, etc.). Theme has a soaring melodic quality over the churning rhythm. The middle section is exactly half time (in 4/4). Trumpet is featured w/ solo melodic statements throughout. Ad lib solo is written for WW 3 (tenor sax), w/ changes cued in for WW 1 (sopr sx), WW 2 (alto), tpt 3, trb 2 and guitar. Woodwind doubles: WW 1 on soprano sax. Optional parts for French horns, tuba.
