Product Description

Afro Blue Composed by Mongo Santamaria. Arranged by Murtha/Rapp. For Marching Band. Published by Hal Leonard Publishing Corp. (Catalog # 03745577, UPC: 884088646639)

Although popular with jazz players (notably John Coltrane) this classic tune is treated here in an Afro Cuban jazz style. The percussion play an integral and featured role as the melody is passed around and punctuated with full ensemble hits. Distinctive and effective!
