Party Talk
Whereas the Brass Band is normally a textural entity this piece, (that is, in the dialogue passages) is contrapuntal, with some swinging, full band interludes. After a brief rhythmic statement by the drums and woodblock the euphonium plays a swinging line, later joined by the flugel and tenor horns at B, in counterpoint. C comprises a middle 8 with a simple tune carried by the repiano, and a chance for the solo cornet to improvise over a given chord progression, although there is a written solo for the less adventurous. Gradually more voices are added to the dialogue when, at K, the work is completed with a romping Coda containing cascades of fun and frolics and a tutti ending. Once again judicious experimentation has led to minim = 88
