“Martha’s New Moment” is a joyous, funky composition with a strong melody and rhythmic accompaniment. It is an engaging tune for most ensemble levels, and offers the rhythm section and melodic instruments musical challenges that will push their understanding of lyricism and “pocket.” Composed using the blues as its foundation, the melody and accompanying rhythm section hits provide students of all levels many opportunities for musical growth and exploration. “Martha’s New Moment” was written by Finnish composer and trumpeter Jukka Eskola, and recorded on flugelhorn. His recording is a prime example of lyrical melodic improvisation with a strong foundation in groove. This homage to 60s soul jazz is an inspiring and fun vehicle for student improvisors, and can be played in a wide variety of instrumentations.
