"Salsa Brava"
By: Dean Sorenson
Instrumentation: Big Band – “Standard of Excellence Jazz In Concert Series”
Publisher: KJOS Neil A. Kjos Music Company
Grade 1 Latin Tempo = 158 $45.00

In spite of the title, “Salsa Brava”, is actually a cumbia. A cumbia (pronounced COOM-bee-ya) is a dance rhythm and should have a happy, carefree feel. The groove is simple, allowing the rhythm section to focus on playing tightly together. This will allow the horns to work on locking up with the rhythm section. The end result should be excellent ensemble playing, and for a beginning jazz ensemble this is essential.

As in all Latin styles, rhythm is vitally important to the over all performance. This piece is built on a blues chord progression, making the harmony easy to hear and the solo section familiar.

As with all “Standard of Excellence Jazz In Concert Series” selections, “Salsa Brava is designed to be played by the full jazz ensemble. This chart however, will sound full and complete by as little as nine (9) musicians. As with all “Standard of Excellence Jazz In Concert Series” a CD of the arrangement accompanies the chart so the young artists playing the music can hear it first.

If you have a young or beginning jazz ensemble assembled then this chart and the entire series from KJOS is a very good place to go for basic educational jazz arrangements.
