Jump High - Len Boogsie Sharpe   New piece
AS5 • $75.00 • Length: 8:00 • Panorama Calypso • Grade Six
Lengendary Steel Band composer Len Boogsie Sharpe has crafted another classic Panorama winner! "Jump High" was performed by 2014 Panorama champion Phase II Pan Groove in the Large Conventional Steel band finals. This work has the perfect blend to showcase your steel band's virtuosity and power. This arrangement displays a variety of steel band timbres, moods, and some wonderful use of dynamics. Jams in major and minor contrast nicely with some blazing work in the upper pans. It concludes with a joyous coda that would make Beethoven proud. Simply put, this is another "Boogsie" masterpiece! Listen to Phase II perform this tune in the 2014 Panorama Finals

For the Day - Paul G. Ross   Click to hear sound clip
AS1 • $60.00 • Length: 8:25 • 3/4 Brazilian Pop • Grade Five
This work is influenced by the music of Pat Metheny and the music of Trinidad. It has a soaring, Brazilian-jazz quality and incorporates a double-ride pattern in the drum set. For The Day features all the pan parts. The drummer solos over the rhythmically surprising introduction. There are four main themes, including the intro, which are all given variations and development at different times within the piece. All players, including the drummer, will be challenged by this piece. For The Day really moves, while at the same time remaining light, and combining accessible melodies with rhythmic excitement. This piece was awarded first prize in the 1996 PAS composition contest for steel band.
