Solo feature for tenor 1
5 reeds, 4 trumpets, 3 trombones, 1 bass trombone or tuba, piano, guitar, bass and drums. Alto flute in reed 1 could be transposed to C flute.
Recorded on Evanescence, I created "Some Circles" with tenor saxophonist, Rich Perry, in mind. Inspired and named after a Kandinsky painting of the same title, it's a slow ballad that creates some of my favorite moments on that first recording of ours. The 4th trombone can choose to play bass trombone or tuba. If you have an expressive tenor player, and some descent woodwind doublers, this is a good feature to program. It has alto flute in the first reed, but I've included an optional C flute part that you can substitute.
Your soloist will enjoy hearing Rich Perry talk about his conception of "sound," and I've created a video to help with the rehearsal and conducting of this piece.
