The Great Shark Hunt

    Years ago, (substitute with "when I were a lad" for the full nostalgia twinge) my school's swing band played this piece, called "The Great Shark Hunt", and now I'm in a position to have a crack at it with my own band, I'm looking for some music.

    Unfortunately, searches around Google are proving somewhat fruitless, and I can't even uncover a composer..

    Here's the track being performed by (I presume) an American school band...


    Have any of you heard of the track, or even better, does anyone know where I'd be able to find the parts?

    Molto Grazie,

    Found this in concert notes:
    THE GREAT SHARK HUNT - from 1983 by Jim McGrath.

    Many thanks for your digging, clearly your ability to dig around surpasses mine by a long way! It may be worth an e-mail to Penders to see how likely they are to get it back in.

    I saw the faqs page, and it looked intriguing, but ultimately useless - teasing me with information, but laughing at me with its lack of links!

    Good luck - I do hope you manage to track it down.
