Infernal — for big band (R. Buonaspina)
  • Infernal — for big band (R. Buonaspina)

    SKU: GMC201901CBBI

    "Infernal" is a high-energy brush-swing/"Montuno" Latin hybrid that pays homage to several esteemed composers of the Big Band tradition (originally written as a contrast to "Violet", another chart of mine).  The ten-minute journey spectacular brings the band to varying macro-formal textures, guides them to experience of large shifts of velocity, and certainly brings them to an outer limit of the human viscera of nervousness that can exist in large ensemble swing.   It's a breaker for the chops, but it's a good opener or closer.
