A Night in Tunisia

Be warned that this is a difficult arrangement. Originally conceived of as a studio creation through which the bass trombone lines could be copied then pasted in place to form a non-stop flow of bass. In order to accommodate that layout for live performance of this arrangement, two bass trombones have been written for. They each alternate the two-bar bass lines in order to create a continuous flow.

This arrangement is a rhythmic treatment of the tune. Listen to the sample below and hear how the phrases repeat and build throughout.
