Water Sprite is a quick, spirited, fun tune in a Neil Hefti sort of style.  It is a bit on the difficult side, though:  1st Trumpet climbs to a double F at one point, and there’s a brief (but tough) “super-sax” section.  Lots of interplay between the sections, trombone and trumpet solo slots.

 

mp3 performance by Augusta Jazz Project “Master of Swing” bigband under the direction of Dr. Rudy Volkmann.  CD available on both “Rudy Volkmann Originals” and “Sold Out.”

 

$52 plus shipping and handling for printed score and set of parts;                                             $40 for pdf’s.
