Description

Originally written in 1986, Suite for Lounge Lizard by Bob Bollman is an impressive tour-de-force for the advanced timpanist. This piece went on to win Bollman the 1986 and 1987 DCI Solo Competition, as well as the 1989 PASIC Solo Competition. Ever since, it’s been performed on many recitals as an unpublished work, and we’re now happy to be presenting it in fully-published form!

The suite contains three “acts” of varying character. Act 1 is a catchy, swing-influenced groove loaded with syncopation. Act 2 is a slower, dramatic movement built on a stately 6/8 ostinato. Act 3 is a sprint to the finish line, featuring blazing-fast licks and incorporating the added colors of a cowbell and a China cymbal. All in all, this suite is a spectacle, perfect for advanced players to perform on recitals or contests!

Suite for Lounge Lizard ships as a printed, professionally bound folio with a full-color cover.

Instrumentation

  • 5 timpani
  • Cowbell
  • China cymbal
