Wind Band

I am fortunate to have the opportunity in the upcoming spring to solo on alto saxophone with a local university's wind ensemble. While this is a great opportunity, the conductor and I are having issues selecting a piece. The band consists of around 50-60 young members with standard instrumentation. They are a fabulous group of musicians although most of the standard rep. is out due to the level of difficulty. The conductor and I are looking for something in the jazz/contemporary realm. I would greatly appreciate any and all suggestions of literature. Thank you for your assistance. email

Would John Williams's "Escapades" be possible for them?

You might look at Bencriscutto's [U]Seranade[/U]. Pat Mann

Introduction and Samba by Maurice Whitney would probably work perfectly for what you need.
