A play on the double meaning of the word Salsa; the tomato based sauce found in Latino cooking commonly used a dip for tortilla chips, and a type of music and dance born in New York City combining Afro-Cuban and jazz styles. Chips and Salsa is a fiery latin number with all the idiomatic devices you'd expect to hear in this style. The arrangement offers lots of opportunities for the engine room to shine and features solo sections for lead pan and timbales.
Instrumentation: tenor pan (lead), double tenors (optional), double seconds, triple guitars, bass pans. The engine room parts include drumset and 3 optional percussion parts using timbales, congas, claves, and cowbell.
