Naughton-Waiting to Exhale (SP)-2M - Product Information
Waiting to Exhale by Peter Naughton was originally written in 2017 for a small jazz combo consisting of vibraphone, steel pan, marimba, upright bass, and drum set. In early 2019, Peter decided to re-orchestrate the piece for marimba quartet (two shared marimbas), which allows for tighter rhythmic precision and a homogenous color. With its driving, perpetual 16th-note interlocking rhythms, this piece requires a strong sense of cohesion among the performers. The musical material of the piece creates a strong feeling of energy and excitement through constant motion and is a perfect compliment to any percussion recital or studio concert.
