The opening of this steady funk piece sees a solid bass line laid down to support a catchy melody. The middle section features another melody this time taken by the easier parts. The piece also allows for an open improvisation section with backing figures and a useful solo guide to help soloists develop an understanding of how they can approach improvisation. This work is useful as an educational tool as well as being a great option for any programme.
Funk on Friday comes with lots of alternative parts. This flexibility in instrumentation means it can be played with anything from a full line-up of Sopranino to Bass, to in it’s simplest form, with five altos and two tenors.
