Funky Kind of Pretty
This tune opens with a two bar phrase on the bass that repeats throughout the A section. The pans and marimba enter with long rolls and become more rhythmic and syncopated as the melody develops. The tune as a whole is kinda funky and kinda pretty, hence the title. The chord progression is well suited for beginning soloists.
Difficulty: Easy/Medium (great for high school and college combos, or can be expanded to accommodate larger percussion ensembles)
Instrumentation – Double Tenors or 2nd’s, marimba (4 mallets), bass, drum set
