Asteroids– this is two of the melodies from Jupiter in the original as a bebop joust for tenor sax and trombone.
Venus– Big Hodges-esque alto ballad, with a sweet high solo moment for trombone.
Saturn– Interlocking solos from Holst’s original make up into an uncannily Ellingtonian collage.
Mercury– Flugelhorn and reeds, a la Anatomy Of A Murder. It’s fast modal flugel jazz with a fun soli for flugel, clarinet and tenor in the Terry/Gonsalves/Hamilton way
