Medium swing. It starts with an open solo in swing vibe, usually Alto with bass and drums and plays into the chart. There are two more solos each on a different section. One is over some easy changes and one is tough over quite a few changes. This chart is one of my favorites. It works really well if you get the vibe. Altos 1/2 Tenors 1/2 Baritone Saxophone 4 Trombones Bass Trombone 5 Trumpets Guitar Piano Bass Drums (no drum part. Drummer reads whichever part that he/she wants.)

Big Band arrangement of a composition that appears on Oceanos, a record by myself and Edward Simon. This is in 5/4 and I would say is not easy. But it's very effective if played correctly. A lot of layered backgrounds behind solos. Cued in whenever the conductor or soloist feels is the right moment to start the build behind the given solo. Altos 1/2 Tenors 1/2 Baritone Saxophone 4 Trombones Bass Trombone 5 Trumpets Guitar Piano Bass Drums (no drum part. Drummer reads whichever part that she/he wants.)
