Program Notes

First heard in the original 1967 animated movie The Jungle Book, this popular tune is featured again in the blockbuster 2016 version. In this clever arrangement, a peppy two-beat style is featured while the melody starts out with the trombones. From there every section gets into the action, including a solo or soli for tuba followed by a brief slower section that showcases a Dixieland combo for a rousing finish.
