It don't mean a thing if you haven't heard this chart yet. It's got two drum solos: brushes on the way in, sticks on the way out.  This winner of a chart is rhythmically exciting, uses contemporary harmonic language, and has solo space for alto and trombone (and anyone else you'd want to insert).

Fantasia is one of my most-played jazz ensemble works.   It has been performed by All-State jazz bands every year for the past decade.   It is widely performed on high school and collegiate jazz festival stages every year, as well.   It's a challenging but accessible piece that is truly within reach of most bands willing to invest the rehearsal time.

Thanks to DOJO (the DiMartino/Osland Jazz Orchestra) for the fantastic recording you hear above (from their CD Off the Charts).
