Harpy Ever After
This is a jazzy ensemble with up to six different parts of varying difficulty, built on a repeating twelve-bar blues sequence. Each part (or “motif”) is therefore only twelve bars long, but recurs regularly throughout the piece. Individual players may want to stay with one motif, or may want to play several during the course of the piece.
The Complete Set of score and parts includes individual pages for each motif, with clear
instructions as to which of the eight “verses” it needs to be played in.
The six motifs are:
A: “First Tune”
B: “Chord Harmony”
C: “Chromatic Melody”
D: “Walking Bass”
E: “Funky Tune”
An extra “motifs only” part is available for players who want to mix and match.
The Supergroove Motif has lever or pedal slides. The motif is not difficult, and the slides can be fun.
Lever or pedal slides are only required in the “Chromatic Melody” and “Supergroove”.
