This piece includes rhythm section parts.
An Andy Firth original written in tribute to the great Australian jazz icon, Don Burrows.
Originally composed and arranged for Andy’s 16 saxophone big band CD “Sax To The Max!” this arrangement has been cleverly scored to work with various combinations of woodwind instruments. Andy has scored simple but authentic sounding jazz flute solos to capture the spirit of Don Burrow’s playing style. But if you think that this makes the chart too hard for your players, you would be wrong. In fact any intermediate level flute ensemble should be able to play this arrangement with ease. The rhythm section is optional as the chart can be performed with or without one. The lively bossa nova feel of the rhythm section combined with the catchy melody and tightly scored parts is sure to be a crowd pleaser where ever it is performed.
