If there were such a thing as Big Band Minimalism this would be it. Suspended is built on a single repeating figure that works its way through a shifting harmonic landscape.

This is truly a one-of-a-kind work for jazz ensemble. It has accessible brass ranges, some brass mutes, and an optional soprano double in sax 1. Terry Riley, Watch Out! 

The recording below was made by a wonderful band I assembled right here in Central PA.  Pittsburgh's Curtis Johnson plays the lyrical Soprano Saxophone fills.
