Junk Wagon composed by John Daversa. For big band. Medium to difficult. Score and parts. Published by Walrus Music Publishing. WA.54657. This is a progressive, modern jazz composition containing several meter and feel changes. It is based around a rhythmic cell in 7. 4, however the majority of the tune is a double time "Drums 'n' Bass" 6. 4 feel. Though there are many other time signatures visited. 12. 8, 5. 8, 5. 4, & 4. , the meter changes are comfortable and intuitive. After the substantial introduction, driving 7. 4 rock section, and 6. 4 melody have been stated, there is a raucous trumpet solo, followed by a driving guitar solo. Then, the groove breaks down to a tight R&B groove featuring a bass solo as flutes and clarinets accoumpany. As the rhythm section goes back to vamping the 7. 4 rock cell, the horns play a conducted slower temp above the chaos. Eventually, the two tempi sync back together for a rousing finale. Highest note for lead trumpet is written F#. Key. a minor. Alto. Flute, Alto. Clar, Tenor. Clar, Tenor. Flute, Bari. Bass Clar, 4,4, Evi or Snyth Solo, G,P, B, D.
