Nice set! No ballad? Or does "Brass Machine" feature a rubato section? [I'm not familiar with that piece].
I love a band that plays Basie charts, might I suggest for a ballad, Basie's "Lil' Darlin'"?

Hey, it's an easy mistake---I know the Basie tune "Wind Machine", which is a bit of a barn-burner. I thought maybe the two tunes were related. Whatever.

Haha, yeah that PIECE is just killer (sorry, I'm getting really anal about that). I remember the first time I heard our band perform that during rehearsal, it got really hard to get the main melody in the saxes out of my head the entire day. Really just awesome. The judges all loved it too, haha.

Well, excuuuuuse me! I own quite a few Maynard albums, but unfortunately don't own the one with that tune. Personally, my favorite Maynard cut is "Give It One"...... 8-)

I usually think pieces are played and songs are sung.

That would be what I was getting at, haha. But actually, I should correct myself by calling them jazz charts rather than pieces. I'm sure they're still pieces, but I'd rather stay true to the genre and call them charts, just like how bagpipe bands call their music "tunes". Lil' tidbit of information for everyone there. ;p

The only song which San Benito knows we will be playing for sure is "Gospel John". I'm playing lead trumpet for it so it's gonna be really fun.
