Edition: Jazz Big Band Arrangement

Description: Afro-Cuban/Latin - Difficult

Publisher: Sierra Music

Rarely does a piece turn up like this one. Although written for Stan Kenton (the mid-1950s), the chart never was recorded by the band (Holman doesn't know why), and it was lost for years. It is a sensational piece, combining Afro-Cuban rhythm (latin) and Swing, and featuring solo space for tenor sax, trumpet and drums. It utilizes counterpoint between the wind sections over a latin vamp and explores the perfect balance between counterpoint and dynamic ensemble writing in the Swing sections. This is Holman at his very best!
