Radiant Morning - Alto Sax feature

Grade 3      Ballad      Composer:Torosian/Arr. Baker      Price:$50     

full version  

A lush full ensemble introduction leads into a beautiful alto sax feature ballad. The sax section takes over for the bridge before returning to the full ensemble for the last A section. A brief transition moves the tempo up to a medium swing for the alto sax’s improvised solo (easy accessible changes) before returning to the original ballad tempo to restate the final A section of the melody. Two brief cadenzas lead to an ensemble coda that supports the soloist to the end of the chart. Ensemble trumpet range to a brief written high C.
