There are times when I enjoy working on the impossible and this was such a time. To list the difficulties, I would include the tempo (this recording is at a speed I thought was practical. If you want to perform it at Brubeck’s original tempo, I am not anyway responsible for the out come), range ( I have included alternate notes for the more challenged player), Length (although it is long- 7:14, the work load is divided equally between the two four member section for an antiphonal effect), counting (what can I say, it’s Brubeck, ensemble difficulty will require either a pro group of musicians or many months of rehearsals with an average ensemble.
