by Ulrich Schultheiss
Witch Hunt is an episode from a film music project which was planned in 2000. The grooving material was written when Ulrich Schultheiss was the keyboard player in a band. During pauses in rehearsals the drummer and Ulrich Schultheiss played it often and had a lot of fun with it, and people asked what kind of music it was, so it was decided to write it down.
A request from saxophonist Gerard McChrystal was the catalyst for producing this arrangement for alto and piano, but there are also versions of the work for ensemble, for full orchestra and for octet.
Instrumentation: Eb sax pno
