Waltz for Peggy is another one of the tunes I wrote early on to try to expand the Channellheimmer Oompah Band’s repertoire. Dancers seem to like it (at least the floor always gets filled when we play it), and the Savannah River Brassworks have used it well for a concert filler.
As with all of these Octoberfest Dances (link), everyone gets major time with the melody, there are interesting countermelodies and challenging “end-of-phrase” licks — and it is very danceable.
Waltz for Peggy for quintet is published by the Cimarron Music Press and can be ordered at http://www.cimarronmusic.com/carols-for-brass-set-1295
The mP3 audio is from my CD The Ball Pin Duo salutes “The Captain” and can be ordered from my CD recordings page
