This composition that I wrote in 1985 and re-arranged recently, features the baritone saxophone (written out solo provided). It is a medium soulfunk where after a ‘classical’ intro a bluesy ‘A’ melody is being played by saxes, trombones and trumpets after which we have a long bridge. In the middle is the baritone solo, followed by an 8 bars drumssolo.

And finally we have the ‘mon fin est ma commencement’ (my beginning is the end) music again but now retrograded; a medieval composing technique introduced by Guillaume de Machault.

Level: advanced.

This is a version played with computer-samples.
