Light Piece

Shout! was written for Brett Baker to demonstrate a particular musical aspect of his trombone playing.  It is a Latin jazz piece subtitled CCC 4 BB - Cha cha cha for Brett Baker - and shows the trombone's ability to act as a declamatory jazz voice, covering much of the range and expressive power of the instrument.  In one sense the title also refers to the jazz tradition of a Shout chorus which often appears towards the end of a jazz piece, bringing the players together after they have all taken their improvised solos.

 Shout! should hopefully be enjoyable to listen to and, although not without its technical challenges, fun to play.
