Ballad, 2 Horns & Rhythm
Victor Lewis' programmatic ballad features a very melodic bass and piano intro and serves as a great medium for demonstrating awareness of large and small scale dynamics. It also requires good intonation between the horns in their upper register. This arrangement is rewarding for players at any ability and experience level. The changes are not difficult and move slowly so that the biggest challenge is to create and maintain interest and energy.
