Big Band - Advanced

Geneva is a jazz waltz scored with rich harmonies and exciting ensemble moments. The piece starts with a piano solo backed by the rhythm section. The melody is then passed around from piano to a horn quartet in a tight, four-part harmony, and then to the flugelhorns with saxes providing a countermelody. After a tenor sax solo, a challenging, unison line leads into a short ensemble section and trumpet solo. An impassioned shout chorus leads back into the melody, where the piece winds to an end.

Notes: Alto 1 doubles on soprano sax
All four trumpet parts double on flugelhorn
