  • Notes & Instrumentation

    Bug Catcher features a nostalgic feeling melody in the alto sax and flugelhorn which becomes part of a conversation with various countermelodies throughout the ensemble. There are featured moments for the lead trombonist, an extended improvised solo for alto saxophone and a funky bass riff that ties the whole piece together. The title refers to a toy the composer had in the 1970’s that was commonplace at the time, (and apparently still is!)

    Program Notes

    Originally written as a lilting funk chart for five piece band, this conversion to full big band has allowed the tune to develop into a multi layered work that explores connections throughout the band. Recorded by Melbourne’s Daryl McKenzie Jazz Orchestra, Bug Catcher features a nostalgic feeling melody in the alto sax and flugelhorn which becomes part of a conversation with various countermelodies throughout the ensemble. There are featured moments for the lead trombonist, an extended improvised solo for alto saxophone and a funky bass riff that ties the whole piece together for the acoustic bass player throughout the chart.

    The title refers to a toy the composer had in the 1970’s that was commonplace at the time, (and apparently still is!)
