Santa Monica (#634535)
Santa Monica is a spectacular latin chart that burns right from the beginning. The opening melodic statement is introduced by a quartet of Alto Sax 1, Baritone Sax, Trumpet 2 and Guitar, with an optional flute part. The band tutti unison section builds and builds into the solo section. Coming out of the solo section, the band goes into stop time, building and building to an exciting solo section playable by any of the five saxophones. 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 G4.
