Maria says: "Tumbadora is a salsa tune I wrote inspired by the role of the congas in Latin music. The feel and rhythms are reminiscent of the sound of the Latin ensembles I enjoy listening to. There is also a heavy influence of the piano in this arrangement which gives the piano player in your band an opportunity to be featured throughout as well as in an improvised section at letter D. You can include a conga player in addition to the drummer and they have a chance to trade solos in the open percussion solo section one bar before letter E. There are some fun brass parts throughout with some challenging rhythms. This is a driving arrangement that will give your whole band a good workout."

  • Lead Trumpet to high C
  • Lead Trombone to high B
  • Percussion section solos
  • Improvised piano solo

This is another Jason Logue. It’s a driving rock tune harmonically inspired by the Miles Davis classic So What. The melodies and solis slither through some tasty harmonic ideas and is balanced by being rhythmically simple. It features solos for any sax and any brass player and the improvisation is only over two chords so it’s great for any level of soloist.
