ContraJam! by Paige Dashner Long for Flute Choir (or Low Flute Choir). From the composer: "With a jammin’ blues groove, the piece begins with contrabass and/or bass flute soli section. Soon, the entire ensemble joins in with percussive sounds, adding to the groove. Next comes a very sticky sassy-fras jelly tune that will have you tapping your toes. ContraJam! ends with an energetic Gospel marmalade, including a jammin’ bass line." With flexible instrumentation, this can be performed by flute choirs or by quartets or quintets of like instruments. As such, it was premiered during the 2024 International Low Flutes Festival in Washington DC with an ensemble consisting of only Contrabass, Sub-Contrabass, and Double Contrabass flutes.
