Program Notes

Here is a tried-and-true old-school classic. Scored for seven players, Encore in Jazz has catchy melodies, a smooth swing feel with sets and kicks in all the right places, and solo sections that give the opportunity to showcase lead players.

- Program Note from publisher

Designed for the conservatory and advanced high school percussion group, Encore in Jazz is written in the jazz idiom using a set of dance drums as well as vibraphone and marimba. It is divided into two main sections; the first is a medium riff tempo, the second is an up-tempo two-beat section. At one point in the piece there is a "battle of drums" between the dance drummer and the rest of the ensemble.
