Nebula is an uncommonly dark and brooding work for jazz ensemble. It will complement and contrast just about anything else you program. The orchestration colors include mallets on the drums, unusual harmonies and gestures in the brass, and a strange groove in the bass instruments.
Like some music from Stan Kenton's library, Nebula has an orchestral vibe with fairly conventional big band scoring. You'll find ad-lib space for your trumpet and trombone soloists.
