Gator's Day Out
This New Orleans-inspired "rumba-boogie" steals without regret from long "second line" traditions and the stylings of Professor Longhair and Dr. John. Picture a
alligator from the swamps of Louisiana putting on airs and taking a trip downtown. That's Gator's Day Out. The piece features messy trombone glissandi, a dirty plunger solo for the trumpet and soli sections for the saxes and trumpets.
