Duration

14 minutes

A brand new work in three movements; an ideal showcase for your brass band. Fanfares, pretty melodies, powerful climaxes, gorgeous textures, showy solos.

The movements are each 4-5 minutes long, and can be purchased seperately.

I. A Fanfare and a Ditty

After both the fanfare and the ditty are presented, a type of development follows. It soon drifts into more ambiguous and profound sounds before bringing the fanfare back.

II. A Blues

Not a blues in traditional form, but a blues in feeling. Bluesy solos and a yearning quality, that eventually builds into a screamed prayer.

III. A Wild and Happy Ride

Imagine the drives of Jack Kerouac. Or John Steinbeck. Or William Least Heat-Moon. An adventure on wheels across hundreds of miles, maybe thousands.
