Recorded on The Thompson Fields, "Nimbus" prominently features alto sax. It requires a player who can build intensity with a degree of chromaticism. It's a dark, minor composition, but with a strong even eighth drive. 

Though it's not terribly difficult for the band, it requires a rhythm section that can carry the excitement, and needs a magnetic soloist. Along with the score & parts, we've included numerous optional mixes to give your bassist, your drummer and your soloist, and even your pianist something to practice with and to reference. The versions without horns, and without drums will surely help your bass player be able to hear the intricacy of what Jay Anderson is playing on bass. These tools will be enormously helpful and inspiring. There's also a video included where I talk about how I rehearse "Nimbus" as well.
