Overview

What do you get when you mix a watermelon and a jukebox (besides a funny picture)? "Beats!" says Blair, and beats is right. While the tempo is a modest 120 and the time signature is mostly in 4/4, some of the tastey morsels you'll find in this piece include several beefy parts with plenty of rudiments packed in, some nice rounds on the tenors, complex bass splits, and even a funky 3 over 2 on the quarter note part. The Mandarins rocked this piece (and variations of it) for a good part of the 2000's and now it's here, for you.

If you're looking to get your hands on something challenging or if your ensemble is looking for a complex cadence to chew on then pick this up and have some fun!
