(alto-feature)


This is a piece I wrote for a friend of mine, Rogier de Mulder who, having one daughter, heard his wife was pregnant of a twin. They had some busy months with their three lovely daughters Rosanne, Amelie and Julia!

It is an altered boogie scheme with an extended ending. Towards the end of the piece the horns play a rhythmic jigsaw puzzle leading to the climax.

During the first time the piece was played a photo was taken from the children and guess what: they had put their fingers in their ears...

Level: intermediate, though rhythmically challenging.


In the demo below with computer-sampled sounds we hear Rogier himself playing on alto.






On YouTube, the Atlantico Big Band in Bogotá - Colombia conducted by Guillermo Garbó play it like this:
