Program Notes

Constructed for an ensemble of sixteen wind players and three percussionists, Just Vibe! represents a taste of the African American culture with ideas, such as musical licks similar to groups like Earth Wind and Fire/Heatwave, grooves heard in 1990s hiphop, and even unique chordal structures from current artists like Anderson Paak. Using a rhythmic ostinato set in the first two measures this work carries energy (hype/chill) from beginning to end. Sit back, enjoy, and Just Vibe!
