Carnival Night begins with two marimba players on one instrument playing an introspective rubato introduction. An expressive tenor saxophone solo is introduced over the continuing marimba background. A mesmerizing Latin beat is launched and the tenor sax improvises over changes. After a powerful brass statement of the first theme, the tune takes off at quarter note = 120 and never lets up. Trumpet 2 has a solo in the Samba section of the arrangement. Listen to the recording of the DCJO playing Carnival Night on ALL IN ONE.
