Blues For Sakis

Shuffle-Blues, featuring all sections
Duration ca. 10 min

The basie-style blues arrangement provides a medium difficult feature-chorus for each section, saxophones, trumpets and trombones. In between there is a lot of space for soloists. The ironic coda cites many other well-known blues heads. It´s a fun piece, offering the occasion to present all members of the band.

Jazz Waltz (Fusion)
Duration ca. 7 min

It´s about the feeling after a long cold winter, when the sun comes out for the first time and icicles start dripping from the roofs, when everything begins to melt what before seemed to be frozen eternally. An uplifting melody in major- and sus4-harmony, variable soloists, a fusion-guitar stating the melody together with other instruments and the percussion or drum solo make you feel in a light and exciting place.

Jazz Waltz/Afro Cuban 6/8
Duration ca. 9 min

The hardbop head, made famous by the Cannonball Adderley Quintet, is stated first in the original setting and appears completely reharmonized in the second chorus. After solos on the original groove, alto 1 is challenged by playing over the new chords and massive backgrounds. Finally the piece turns into a 6/8 afro-cuban groove, space for a modal solo.
