Away Without Leave by Bob Becker is a rudimental drumming medley dedicated to his friend Steve Gadd, playing on the famous groove Duke’s Lullaby. This piece alternates between samba-like figures and more standard military-style drumming.
Written for five players, this non-pitched percussion ensemble is catchy and groovy, appealing to a wide audience. You would open people’s eyes by opening a concert with this piece, or by programming it right after intermission.
