Waltz for Gary-medium jazz waltz for Flugel horn
This is actually a waltz written for the flugel horn but I recorded it on soprano sax. This was written for our friend Gary Halopoff who passed away recently way to soon.
This starts quietly in 1 with drum brushes and soft backgrounds with Flugel and buckets in the bones behind the Flugel melody. The second chorus drops in to a 3 feel with the flugels on the melody. . The solo section for the Flugel starts in a1 feel and moves to a driving 3. The ensemble starts with the saxes in counterpoint then the brass come in to finish it out leading back into the Flugel melody and finishing quietly. This is a pretty tune for the Flugel player with the cool sound.
