"Bright Lights"
By: Bob Mintzer
Instrumentation: Big Band
Publisher: Kendor Music, Inc.
Grade 4 1/2 Funk Tempo = 120 $45.00

As is always the case, playing the commercially recorded CD is perhaps the best preparation for a band attempting to play this piece. To achieve a good performance, the major focus during rehearsals should be on getting the rhythm section to play with a groove that has “snap” and intensity without being busy. Listening to Williams’ drumbeat on the Yellowjacket recording and this will demonstrate it’s overall importance to the strong percussive funk feel.

The horn section also needs to convey the same rhythmic intensity. Make sure wind players put little sforzandos or “pings” on the attacks of notes, and that everyone “hits” together.

If a funk groove is what you want than “Bright Lights” will shine during your concert.

Top note for trumpet is D above the staff
