In Stock. The Spirit of Adventure is a brilliant band work by Jeff Smallman. It is set in the style of the old Westerns with several typical themes. A very animated and colourful work at the medium level, this piece works perfectly on any program and is sure to get the audience involved. Melody flows throughout the ensemble and all parts are interesting with fun solo or soli sections for most instruments. Close your eyes and imagine your favourite Western . . . this music would fit!
This colourful title aptly combines the basis for the piece and the person it was written for. Tenth grade trumpet player Alex McCarthy would come to brass quintet rehearsals and, rather than warming up on long tones or lyrical studies, he would play excerpts from the Denis Di Blasio tune Coconut Champagne which was written for Maynard Ferguson and his band. This piece uses that melodic material as a base for this upbeat samba tune. There is a solo section for cornet and a written out solo has been provided.
