Dancing Sunlight is a kind of mini-suite for jazz orchestra, with space for several different soloists and transitions in both tempo and meter. Dedicated to Emily Carr, the Canadian west coast painter and inspired by a particular painting of hers of the same title, this is a really beautiful composition of Christine's. From the gorgeous brass chorale at the beginning to the soprano & trumpet melody, solo sections and all the way through to the serene ensemble passages that bring the piece to a close, this is sure to be a favourite for both band and audience. As recorded by The Christine Jensen Jazz Orchestra on Treelines.
1st Alto doubles on Soprano, 2nd Alto on Flute, 1st Tenor on Clarinet, and all Trumpets on Flugelhorn.
