Program notes:

This is a jazz-style piece based on Fukuoka Prefecture's folk song "Kuroda-bushi".
The first draft was written in 2004, was mainly used as a performance piece for the "Color Guards" of the Kitakyushu City Fire Department Band (where I was working at the time).
The introduction and other parts were revised in 2006 while I was working for the Oita Prefectural Police Band, and orchestration, harmony, etc. were further reworked from 2023 to 2024.

1. Although I have (daringly) included detailed articulation symbols in some parts, please do not get caught up in the details, but rather value your own "Feeling".
2. If there is no designated instrument, other instruments may be substituted (except for the Clarinet and Tenor Saxophone solo in [H]).
3. For the percussion section, instruments not specified may be added.

*The sound source is from 2011 and differs from this score in several ways (the overall composition of the music remains the same).
