Program Notes

“McNeil” was written for the McNeil High School Saxophone Ensemble based on the bass line by (at the time) McNeil Senior “Jimbo” Brand. The piece switches between Funk and Latin styles and features an 48-bar open solo section. Originally for one alto, two tenors and one baritone, the piece also includes an optional 2nd Alto that doubles the 2nd Tenor.
