This is a reggae-swing piece dedicated to the Pequot Native American Indian tribe from New England, and was inspired by a visit to a museum at the Foxwoods Casino (run by the remnants of the Pequot tribe).
These folks really had it going on in such a gentle and focused way. I tried to convey this harmony and roundness in the music. The arrangement never gets loud, and has a soothing texture to it. It could be a nice addition to a big band program to rest the ears!
