San Juan Shuffle

This tune is a hybrid fast afro-cuban piece that starts and ends with a brass choral over the groove. The theme is an energetic brass tutti with unison saxophones. There is solo space for several soloists playing over an altered dominant chord. You can open this up for percussion and drum solos.
The Mintzer big band recorded this on Latin from Manhattan on the DMP label.
