This arrangement has great counter-melodies & background rhythms to give it a cool salsa groove.
Melody starts in the bone, then shifts to the 1st trumpet, then the tuba. There's even a section
where the trumpeters & trombonist play some rhythm "instruments" -- a great way to add
interest & give the lips a break. The horn gets a bit of melody as the chart winds down to
a quiet, relaxed ending.
