Waterproof  (Rob Catlender)

I wrote this funky duet for alto & tenorsaxophone in the mid-eighties and I recently revised it completely. It has a 16th swing-feel.

When I finished composing this piece I still had no title for it.

That same night there was a cloud-burst in my town and my house got flooded from door to door. I wished my house would have been ‘waterproof...’

The melody is played as a duet of 1st alto and 1st tenor. In the middle there is room for soli, in the audio-sample below played by an electric piano. After the first solo we come to a 16 bar latin bridge that brings us to the next soloist.  It ends with the theme and drums-fills.
