The jive is today’s most swinging dance style. The necessary ingredients are a swinging, walking bass and rhythm section. Also needed is a saxophone section that perfectly fits in by listening to the rhythm section and by homogeneous, not too loud playing with carefully written syncopation’s. The brass sections needs to sound as one big block, typical to the big band sound. The other (wood) winds are scored as a backing group. Kees Vlak was inspired to write this composition after a concert of a little band in Amsterdam – The City –, that performed with such a swinging feel that they received a standing ovation.
