      Hard Bargain m48-86
      Hard Bargain m87-124


Great as a program opener or closer, this hard-driving swinger is punctuated by several spicy half-time funk passages that boost momentum and excitement from start to finish. Strong ensemble writing throughout is contrasted with two open solo sections — one for brass, one for saxes and/or guitar — with cued backgrounds. For players with little improvisation experience or confidence, written solos are included for alto, tenor, bari, trumpet and trombone. Duration 5:30.

Style: Swing
