A high speed samba in the last abum of 1st term Brecker Bros.
21-year-old Marcus MIller on bass.
Key : F#m (Em on C.T.=Concert tune)
16 beat on tempo 140.
So, both technique and energy are required to play.
There are 5 times climbing to altessimo : B or C# (C.T.: A or B) that give
This altissimo note is relatively easy to pronounce, but the last C# (B
on C.T. = last note of sax solo) is really hard after the rushed climax
Chord progress is build by A (8 bars) and B (also 8 bars) as below:
"A" starts with sudden D#m ( C.T. : C#m) chord, where MB uses
D# (C.T. :C#) major scale in some parts.
Just as a personal matter, this tune is special for me.
On the day of Jan.13 2007, I practice this solo almost all day long.
The night, I came to know MB had passed away.
