This title is a hand drumming ensemble piece written for 6 or more players. It is written with an African flavor using congas, djembes, shakers, bells and more. This piece is a great way to introduce some younger or novice hand drummers to hand drumming, while keeping a high standard of integrity in sound quality and style. An audience favorite since it makes such a nice contrast to other percussion ensemble music, Hand Jam is very playable for high school and college level ensembles. A driving 4/4 groove is broken up with a 6/8 mid-section before returning to a high energy ending in 4/4. Hand Jam would work very well either as a piece for dance accompaniment or as an ensemble piece performed by itself.
