BIG TOP, THE [FROM THE MARCIAC SUITE]
Composed and Arranged by Wynton Marsalis
Edition: Jazz Septet Arrangement
Description: Waltz - Difficult
Publisher: Jazz Lines Publications
This movement does a wonderful job of encapsulating the qualities that have made circuses so endearing over the years: playful, comical, and just a bit bizarre. The overall feel should be kept as light as possible. The melody line shifts around between instruments quite frequently, so be sure to be aware of who is carrying the tune at all times. Soloists on the original recording are Marsalis on trumpet, Wess Anderson on alto sax, Cyrus Chestnut on piano and Wycliffe Gordon on trombone.
This arrangement has been prepared from Wynton Marsalis's original score and parts - this is not a transcription.
Soprano Sax/Tenor Saxophone
