Iridescent (Jazz/Rock Fusion)
Offer one of Linkin Park's greatest hits and the theme to Transformers: Dark of the Moon to your big band, with a twist. You will have the audience nodding in time and the band singing along (yes, it is written in the part) to this classic song. Written for two voices and big band, but it can be equally successful with a solo voice or trumpet for the melody. The parts are interesting for all players yet easy enough to be polished in a few rehearsals. Lead trumpet and lead trombone are required to play high A's. It is all about the rhythm section as this chart transitions back and forth from a double time feel.
