Hippo's Parade
Don Bateman, solo for Eb Bass and Brass Band
A lively introduction in 3 leads into the Tuba Solo in 5 with some fullblooded punctuation at cadential points. A contrasting blidge passage in 2 gives way to the tuba, once again in 5. However, in order to add some variety, and to provide a possible vehicle for improvisation by the soprano cornet/tuba, there is a sustained passage, complete with chord progression, in the style of a jazz waltz. This makes the improvisation easier, although there is always a written solo as a fall back if it cannot be bettered! There are also some brief flunies of cut common time which help to make it all go with a swing. As to the metronome marking,176 seems to hit the spot.
