Iraqi Blues

Description: A medium up funky blues, with a stick, in 5/4 even 8ths. The piece is written for an A- or Bb-piccolo trumpet lead, but can with some effort be played with a regular Bb-trumpet lead. The piece starts with a slow intro and a pick up to the main tempo and theme. After the stick are open choruses for solos in various instruments, that after the last soloist lead to an interlude-like part that serves as a pick up for a quite demanding sax chorus. After the sax chorus comes a band shout, that leads back to the main theme and an outro. Notated key G (D blues).
