In Stock. This haunting Christmas piece has been beautifully arranged for brass quintet with the horn and trombone playing much of the melody with the trumpet players performing on flugel horns and the tuba and optional timpani providing the foundation.
Noticing a lack of original Canadian jazz for brass quintet, Ward Cole wrote this piece for Foothills Brass in 1985. He based his Bobtail Suite on a couple of his beautiful English Sheepdogs: Pan and Cyndi. Pan was tragically killed which led Ward to write his mournful Lament. Cyndi liked to strut around like a show dog. He completed the suite by writing Jasper & Yogi, a musical description of a couple of rowdy and comical English Sheepdogs owned by a friend.
