La Cumparsita Gerardo Matos Rodríguez, arr. by Chris Sharp
for Jazz Ensemble
This is a tour-de-force treatment of the world's best-known tango in the style of Bill Holman's epics for the Stan Kenton band. A flamenco-style fanfare opens the chart followed by a ballad treatment of the B section. Then the main tune, in its familiar tango mode, is followed by an up-tempo samba version ending in an all-out, fiery ensemble ending. In true Holman style, this passage is interrupted by a short swing section. There are solos featured for tenor sax 1, notated with changes, and guitar with changes only.
