A Latin big band number with a very ‘up’ feel for the developing band as well as more experienced players.
Rayo de Sol captures the big band Latin style with written solos for Alto sax and Trumpet. For any Big Band working on styles, there is an opportunity to focus on dynamics and articulation.
Rayo de Sol makes good use of harmony in sectional playing as well as full tutti in rhythmic passages, especially useful for training bands rehearsing timing and counting.
A nice change of pace and feel for any big band concert program.
