Startin’ Sumthin’, originally scored for wind quintet and commissioned in 2012 by Jenny Cline and the Monmouth Winds, is a modern take on 1930’s swing jazz and meant to be a fun retro-ride. To arrive, take the Louis Jordan highway, merge onto the Lionel Hampton causeway, turn right on the Jump Jazz expressway and exit when the harmonies start to get a little coarse and dense.
Here, transcriber Trevor Butts blasts out the swingin’ fun for large scale wind ensemble, adding deliciously spicy tidbits of his own creation along the way!
