This tune has a kooky brass band march feel. The accompanying horns' figure (displayed above the tenor sax. staff) is played staccato (or even staccatissimo). According to a Wikipedia Talk source (at the 9/8 meter would be divided as 2+2+3+2. However, I prefer the given 2+2+2+3 subdivision, which follows the bass line.

I haven't paid too much attention to the chord changes, so please listen to the piece to get it right. Comments are appreciated.

Regards, Ville
