Product Details


Although Movin' Uptown has some technical difficulties (range and tempo), it shouldn't present too much of a musical challenge for your students. The style and content are very similar to a number of Sammy Nest pieces that high school and college bands regularly perform. Since this is an up-tempo flag-waver, Benny Carter chose to use a 64-bar AABA song form instead of the usual 32, which keeps each chorus at a length of one minute. Each A section consists of and a and a b, and the B section also are split in 2 8-bar sections.
