Mirage is truly a one-of-a-kind jazz ensemble chart. Its musical narrative portrays a lonesome caravan aimlessly plodding through the desert. They happen upon an Eden-in-the-Sahara and party in ecstasy—until their Eden vanishes suddenly.
This is a robust chart, with optional clarinet and flute doubles in a couple of the sax books. (Saxophone-only parts are also included, and work great, too).
Challenge your band and stun your audiences with this compelling musical statement.
