Description

Joaquin On Sunshine is a creatively-titled piece for a large ensemble of 15-17 players (the extra players are preferable if the marimba parts can be doubled). It has a festive, soulful Afro-Cuban flavor and is thickly scored with a full complement of Latin rhythm section instruments — piano, bass, drumset, timbales, congas, bongos, and shekere. Typical “strong” beats are rarely where melodic or rhythmic emphasis aligns. This emphasis on syncopation and inner-beat rhythms make it an excellent piece to practice groove and ensemble awareness. Joaquin On Sunshine would make a great closer for larger percussion ensemble concerts.

This piece comes with a full, bound score and includes a CD-Rom containing an audio recording and all individual parts available for printing.

Instrumentation

  • Crotales
  • Glockenspiel
  • Xylophone
  • Chimes
  • 2 vibraphones
  • Marimba (4.3-octave, low A)*
  • Marimba (4.5-octave, low F)*
  • 4 timpani
  • Drumset (5-piece)
  • Drums (bongos, 2 congas, 2 timbales with 2 cowbells and cymbal attached, djembe)
  • Cymbals (2 suspended cymbals, splash cymbal, 2 sizzle cymbals)
  • Accessories (shekere, 2 trinagles, finger cymbals, mark tree, guiro) 
  • Piano
  • Electric bass guitar


*Preferrably doubled.
