Fasten Your Seatbelt  is a septet in two movements for solo euphonium (with alternative parts for trombone or tenor saxophone), alto saxophone and trumpet, bass guitar, electric piano, drum set and marimba / congas.

It is a typical example of the versatile composing talent of Roland Szentpali. His approach to jazz is well structured, with virtuoso written sequences over a dynamic rhythm section sustaining the three melodic wind instruments (with optional improvisation spaces for them).

I. Hunting Instinct is a 7/4 speedy groove music running over long basso continuo ostinati of the rhythm section including collectiv virtuoso intrusions of the wind instruments and improvised sequences.

II. Transfer Passenger is pushing another kind of speedy groove, here on a more traditional 4/4, inspired by the human traffic jam in crowded international airports...

Indeed, fasten your seatbelt...

World premiere: 30th of June 2017, Theater 'de Schalm' in Veldhoven, the Netherlands with the Jazz Combo of “The Band of the Royal Netherlands Army Mounted Regiment” and soloist Rodin Rosendahl on the euphonium.
