The Frog and the Banana Tree

(No listening currently available)

Description: A medium-slow swing with lyrics by Daniel Eng, this piece starts off with a somewhat hacked-up intro theme, that introduces the vocalist. The vocalist then presents the theme, before handing over to the piano soloist and some ensuing backgrounds. The solo ends in a short and very soft stop-time passage where the saxes exchange marks with the drums, followed by an ensemble chorus ending with a shout. A variation of the stop-time follows, handing over to the vocalist singing the last theme lyrics before an outro paraphrasing the intro ends the piece. The brass has some mute-work throughout. Notated key F.
