The final track of Ben van Dijk's 5th solo cd "World Concerto":
"La Tarara" by Frederico Garcia Lorca here in a sensational arrangement by Steven Verhelst and Ben van Dijk. "La Tarara" tells the story of a beautiful Flamenco dancer wearing a green Flamenco dress.
This arrangement see's Ben start playing on his beloved Flamenco guitar before moving on to play the melody line on bass trombone accompanied by himself on guitar and then on to the contrabass trombone for some soaring low notes and basslines.
Some great licks and sectional playing from Jan Oosting (tenor trombone) and a rhythmical amazing bassline from Martin van den Berg (tuba).
Both Jan Oosting ( tenor trombone ) and Martin van den Berg ( bass trombone and tuba ) play in the famous Dutch jazz orchestra the "Metropole Orchestra"
We hope you will enjoy this promotional clip!
Thanks to Bigears productions - Max Boeree for the video edit, Martin van den Berg for the recording edit, Jan Oosting for his great playing and Steven Verhelst for his great brass arrangement.
"La Tarara" is the bonus track on Ben van Dijk's 5th solo cd "World Concerto" a cd with music composed and arranged by Steven Verhelst for bass trombone solo and brass band accompanied by the Amsterdam Staff Band.
