Moreland City Band Phoenix Project performs Cathy Connor’s original composition entitled Circus Toon.
Cathy introduces and explains the style of the piece.
Circus Toon is supposed to be very hammy. It's very influenced by Duke Ellington. I love Duke Ellington, and there's lots of bits there that do remind me of some of the Duke Ellington pieces that I've loved. You know - trumpet mutes, wah-wah mutes, and growling and sliding trombones and all that kind of stuff...
