Description

Tetsuro Naito's piece Nanafushi was originally written for the famous Taiko group, KODO. Here arranger Jeffery Crowell has distilled it down to a creative arrangement for a trio of western percussion instruments. Percussionists use their hands and both feet to blaze through the energetic work. This one definitely requires intensity and physical stamina! Written in a "pseudo swing" rhythmic interpretation (not straight, not swung, but somewhere in between) and featuring an abundance of soloistic flair, this barn-burner will keep listeners on the edge of their seats.

This piece comes with a full, bound score and includes a CD-ROM containing a video and all individual parts available for printing.

Performed by Derek Sandcamp, Jeffery Crowell, and Mike Malone.

Instrumentation

  • 2 sets of bongos
  • 2 congas
  • 2 floor toms
  • 2 kick drums
  • 2 small concert bass drums*
  • 1 pair of Asian, "jing" style cymbals**
  • High and low clave 


*Played with a foot pedal on each.
*
Sometimes called "chappas."
