Recorded on Sky Blue (2007), "Aires de Lando" was commissioned by the Los Angeles Philharmonic Association Esa-Pekka Salonen, Music Director, Dianne Reeves, Creative Chair for Jazz, February 8th, 2006 and was given its world premiere at Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles. It's a clarinet feature, but I've also performed it as an accordion feature. We're including an additional solo part in C for that purpose. You could even feature violin if you have a great soloist. The trickiest part of this piece is the fact that it's a multi-metered lando (a Peruvian rhythm). But this is a chance for your percussionists to learn about a great rhythm on cajon through the extra video we've included. We also provided you with an MP3 of cajons alone w/bass, and then the horns with no cajons so that your students have a version to practice with, as well as a practice version for your soloist. We'll also give you a version with no drums for your drummer. You've got every conceivable tool available to make this a success provided you have the soloist you need.
