Suite For Joe: 3. Inches Behind - Jean-Nicolas Trottier
Composer: Jean-Nicolas Trottier
Product Code: WWM-118
(Score and Parts)
Instrumentation: Big Band (5,4,4,4)
The third of four pieces that make up Jean-Nicolas Trottier's "Suite For Joe", which is dedicated to Joe Sullivan. This lovely, richly scored ballad features solo trombone throughout, and is inspired by the linear melodic writing and lush orchestration of Gil Evans. The saxophone section doubles on woodwinds throughout (2 flutes, 2 clarinets and bass clarinet), and there is a tuba part in place of the bass trombone.
