Escapades (from Catch Me If You Can)

Alto Saxophone and Concert Band

Score and Parts

Series: Concert Band Professional Composer: John Williams Arranger: Stephen Bulla

Level: 5

Steven Spielberg's 2002 film Catch Me If You Can was set in the 1960s, and John Williams created a marvelous film score evoking the style of the progressive jazz movement popular during that time. Soloists on alto saxophone, vibraphone and string bass are featured in this suite of three contrasting movements. “Closing In” relates to the often humorous sleuthing ever present in the story. This is followed by “Reflections” portraying the fragile family relationships, and finally “Joy Ride” representing the main character's wild flights of fantasy.
