Ragtop Heaven is the sequel to the very popular “Brand New Car”, released in 2009. It’s a barnburner from start to finish! Switching gears smoothly between swing and a rock shuffle feel, Ragtop Heaven captures spectacularly the excitement and energy of a heart-stopping drive in a top-end convertible sports car! The tutti unison really roars! Brass ranges are very moderate for this level of difficulty, making the chart accessible to many ensembles. Rhythm parts are fully notated. Written ranges: trumpet C6, trombone Ab4.
(Instrumentation: AATTB saxes, 4 trumpets, 4 trombones, piano, guitar, bass, drums)
