Using an energetic and dynamic intro from Maria, this cleverly arranged opener then slips into the jazzy strains of Cool. Using plenty of unison lines, exposed sections for percussion, and even a shout chorus, this is an impressive chart without being too difficult to pull off. For an extra “cool” effect, have your color guard do the finger snaps.
