Frogg Café day continues...Belgian Boogie Board score samples

Yes, the
Frogg Café celebration continues!

Andy Sussman was generous enough, as he mentioned in his reply to the CD review below, to send me a copy of the full score to 'Belgian Boogie Board,' Frank Camiola's Zappa-esque instrumental that concludes the Froggie's latest studio album, Bateless Edge.

We're still working on figuring out if there's a way to share the whole thing with you, but in the meantime I will post two sections of the score, watermarked and incomplete, to give you some idea of the complexity of this piece from a compositional standpoint. For the record, each page of the score covers 23 instruments:

  • Clarinet in B flat
  • Alto sax
  • Tenor sax
  • Bassoon
  • Trumpet in B flat
  • Trombone 1
  • Trombone 2
  • Wood blocks
  • Glockenspiel
  • Marimba
  • Snare drum
  • Bass drum
  • Drum set
  • Banjo
  • Guitar
  • Bass guitar
  • Piano
  • Harpsichord
  • Organ
  • Violin 1
  • Violin 2
  • Cello
  • Bass

If at some point we've got clearance to post the whole thing, I will make an announcement. Until then, enjoy these samples :-)
