Composed for the 2016 Century High School Jazz Ensemble #1 of Bismarck, North Dakota, In-School Suspension features a small-group melody played by muted trumpet, trombone, alto sax, and optional vibraphone, as well as featured soli sections for both the saxes and trombones. The middle of the chart provides lots of opportunity for open solos on a suspended-chord blues progression that young improvisers will find familiar yet challenging.
