Rancid Beans

BeansJazz-Funk – 5-Horn Ensemble

(Jazz Comp 2 – Spring 2004)

Original Music by Jared Banta
Tenor Sax Soloist – David Black

Here’s my Jazz Comp 2 midterm project that was performed at my senior recital at Berklee. The band did a pretty nice job reading it; it’s a tough chart.

I don’t really have much to say about it I guess. I was in a bad mood when I was writing it, but I’ve gotten mostly positive feedback on it.

I should mention that I promised John to title a song “Rancid Beans” many years before writing this, although I’m sure he doesn’t remember that 🙂 I am a man of my word!
