This foot-tapping Latin-style cornet feature was written by Barrie Gott for the Brisbane Excelsior Band. 


The composer writes:

‘I had wanted to write something in this genre after the success of the third movement of the Jazz Suite. Entertainment numbers are always needed for park and popular concerts. It is important that the rhythm section maintains a consistent tempo. They can be featured also. The samba rhythm and feel should be maintained throughout. The occasional sombrero would not be out of place. Enjoy!’
