Have You Heard is a popular piece by the musical legend, Pat Metheny. In this arrangement Olin Johannessen creates a "mallet band" to recapture the exuberance of the original. Mallet players are accompanied by a rhythm section of bass guitar, drumset, and auxilliary percussion.
This is an upbeat and crowd-pleasing piece which allows for an extended solo section in the middle. It would be a great closer for any percussion ensemble concert or a great way to highlight your percussion group during jazz ensemble concerts.
This piece comes with a bound score and includes an mp3 recording and all individual parts available for printing in pdf format on the included CD-Rom.
