Composer Roger Aldridge

Salt Marsh Rag


For Mid-size Jazz Ensemble. Duration: 3:00



Salt Marsh Rag has an early jazz feeling and a good amount of humor. It is meant to be fun and something that is distinctly different for performers and audiences. While this rag draws upon American roots music and is intended to sound old, there is a playful juxtaposition of old and new. The score was originally conceived for woodwind quintet and jazz rhythm section. Alternate parts are provided for an assortment of instruments within the range of each wind part. This enables the music to be played by many kinds of instruments.
