Ellis Island

This is an Afro-Cuban 6/8 piece dedicated to the small island off the coast of New York City where many of our ancestors entered the United States en route from points east. The solo sections are on a one chord vamp, and can be opened up for multiple soloists. Challenging rhythms abound, but once you get them in proper perspective, this can be a strong entry in a big band program!
