Our September 2015 track is another biguine from Martinique (see our May 2015 release, "Serpent Maigre"). But where the first is a sunny romp in Bb major, "Mettez I Dehro" ("Put Him Out," in Creole) begins with a more serious and aggressive type of party in G minor. Until we arrive at the B section, that is, when we find ourselves in Bb again.

The nice thing about toggling between different keys is you get a little fresh inspiration each time. So pay attention to the hand-offs: Ben runs down the whole form, minor and major, on clarinet before passing it back to Aurora on alto sax, in the minor key. (Also dig, if you will, Matt Perrine picking up the bass groove on sousaphone behind Aurora's second A section.) Then, when she tags Charlie on trombone, he stretches out again for two B's in the more open territory of the relative major. Finally, Ben comes back with the minor and all three horns duke it out to the end, boom-boom-boom-boom!
