Bare Necessities, The
First heard in the original Jungle Book movie from 1967, this familiar tune is featured again in the blockbuster 2016 version. In this clever arrangement for band, Paul Murtha uses a peppy 2-beat style and starts out with the trombones on the melody. Every section of the band gets into the act, however, including a solo or soli for tuba, and a brief slower section for a Dixieland combo leading to the rousing finish. A guaranteed highlight on any concert.
