A jazz band piece for colleges and a few competitions. On that soundcloud is more jazz band songs. Give it a listen and tell me what you think. Thank You!

I love jazz, it's nice to hear people working on new material for this genre. It's a nice groove. Nothing earth-shakingly new, but things don't have to be earth-shakingly new to be good. A lot of the original literature is full of quotes and such. Good composers steal, great composers steal and make it their own. OOh, new drum groove around 2:20, works well with the accompanying textures/etc. That section was definitely refreshing 🙂 Cool horn break at 3:20 ish. Overall some really nice texture and line work here, I'm beginning to wonder what would happen if you explored a new tonal center in a section of the piece - it feels super stable. You might gain some interest to take one of the sections and modulate it into a new key for a phrase or three, then return back to the original for your closing statements. Not a must, just wondering.

Great piece!

P.S. I love hearing "the lick" at 1:40 ish. 😄

I like it, ...  some great ideas.   I could imagine a prog-rock band working this too  Like Yes, with Chris Squire bass,  and Jimi Hendrix's jazz period drummer, on the verge of overplaying. Excellent riffs
