full version  

Everybody knows that one person in their life, a loose cannon that could go off at any time in any direction. This postmodern minor blues is dedicated to such a person, Jim “Spazz” Spasinsky. The melody is a little off, the form is a little off, and the a capella “space cadet” section endeavors to go where no man has gone before – into the mind of Spazz. Each section in the band is challenged. Solos for alto sax, trumpet, and drums. Trumpet range is to written high D with optional E and F (both are notated on the part and score).
