Recorded in 1998 by the Monday Night Big Band on their Thanks To Thad album, this is Part 2 of Thad's larger Return Journey Suite. Set in 5/4 time, it's an intense workout that calls for well-executed ensemble rhythms and articulations. Solos for tenor, trumpet and trombone build into a mighty full-band shout before the chart goes out on a quieter note. Standard jazz ensemble plus opt. 5th Trumpet, 5th Trombone or Tuba, & conga/tambourine; S(A)ATTB saxes .
