New Concert Band Music


Joseph F. Lamb is rightfully regarded as one of the "Big Three" composers of classic ragtime music, the other two being Scott Joplin and James Scott. Lamb, who was of Irish descent, was the only non-African American of the group. Unlike Joplin and Scott, Joseph Lamb's fame outlived the era of classic ragtime, and he along with Eubie Blake were the only personalities from the original ragtime era that took part in the ragtime revival of the late 1950s. Ragtime Nightingale is a "heavy rag" and displays Lamb's individual style, delightful syncopations and jaunty spirit that appear so pleasingly throughout the piece. A new dimension to concert programming.

Scarborough Fair is simply one of the most beautiful and haunting melodies of all time. This setting of the melancholy tune captures the mood of a gray and rainy afternoon, perfectly matching the sounds of gently falling rain and distant rumbles of thunder. Though not essential, recorded sound effects of distant rain and thunder can be added, making it even more impressive and appealing.

Bright, lively and extremely appealing, this spellbinding Latin-flavored concert work displays all the harmonic color and syncopated rhythms one expects to find in a rhumba. The wide range of percussion instruments adds to the exotic flavor and overall hypnotic effect that the alluring melodies create. The intriguing title has a double meaning in that the music is in the style of a sultry rhumba, and rhumba is also a term used for a group of rattlesnakes.

The music of Revolution is bold and restless and, like most revolutions, combines passionate, hopeful and anxious undercurrents. Mounting levels of musical tension build relentlessly like a restless mob that grows as it charges through the streets, leading to the initial statement of the melody. A quiet waltz-like section slows the action, gradually taking on a more anxious and almost sinister nature which then charges forth to the frenzied conclusion.

The United States Air Force maintains a special and mysterious base in Nevada known as Area 51. There is much speculation that the wreckage of alien spacecraft and perhaps even captured or recovered aliens are secretly housed there. This selection allows the listener to take an imaginary look into that top-secret facility through music with a strong military theme and otherworldly sounds provided by special effects.

This memorable Civil War-era folk song has a distinctively haunting quality that one can't help but be affected by. The moving melody opens the piece on a slightly melancoly note that leads to the main, spirited middle section that glistens with good-natured rhythmic activity. Adding to the authenticity, the entertaining addition of washboard and spoons brings this catchy bluegrass tune to life, helping us connect to this delightful American folk song.

The Christmas classic We Three Kings is given a fresh new treatment in this special setting for the holidays. The regal and majestic opening introduces a brief lyric section that contrasts nicely with the familiar carol that follows. The bright holiday melody is cleverly presented in an upbeat arrangement that uses alternating 2/4 and 3/4 time changes for a spirited and highly appealing seasonal setting.

Venom is a work for young concert band inspired by the predators of the animal world that use venom to hunt their prey. It utilizes a slightly exotic scale, bombastic drums, and dissonant chords to create a musical portrait of an attack by one of these fascinating creatures.

Here's a light and entertaining work for first-year musicians that's the perfect vehicle for teaching and reinforcing playing in 3/4 time. As the title implies, it's meant to be a fun and good-humored piece that makes learning and playing fun. It begins with the full ensemble and then allows the woodwinds and then brass to perform separately, making the piece easy to rehearse and prepare while teaching rhythmic independence. A great entertaining and educational addition to any elementary band program.

Other carols presented are God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen and Silent Night, with Angels We Have Heard on High closing the work in a regal and majestic manner.
