(No listening currently available)

Description: The fourth and last movement of a suite featuring two guitarists, this piece starts off with saxes and piano in a driving eighth note rhythm, with bass, baritone sax and bass trombone presenting a bass voiced theme. The both guitars present a short, more prominent theme in unison, where after the drums join in when Guitar 2 takes off in a solo over a minor-sounding key. The first solo ends with an interlude similar to the intro, where the song changes key and muted trumpets present the guitar theme again. That interlude ends with a pick up for Guitar 1, where the drums join in again for a guitar solo over a major-sounding key. The second solo ends with i similar interlude like outro, where the song changes back to the original key and subsequently comes to an outro with solo cadenzas for both guitars, backed up by drum fills, before the brief ending punctuation.
