For 8 to 12 players (4 optional percussion parts) any, none or all of theses optional parts can be added depending on your circumstances and the availability of instruments/players and for more performance possibilities Bb and Eb versions of the Melody, Montuno and Harmony parts are included arranged for the novice performer.
