Out of Town - SSAA with rhythm - Download PDF,<em> by Jennifer Barnes</em> Out of Town - SSATTB with rhythm - Download PDF,<em> by Jennifer Barnes</em> Deacon Lunchbox - PDF Download,<em> by Jim White</em>
(Level 5) This is a burning fast, wordless, very challenging modern bebop head as recorded by the Yellowjackets on Four Corners. The melody may be divided up into several small groups for variety and relief! Other than the unison and two-part head, there is a "shout chorus" and an improv section that may be opened up. Your rhythm section is key to making this one work in light of the burning swing tempo (almost straight-eight) that must be maintained. Well worth the hard work it takes to learn if your group is really ready for a challenge! SSAA with rhythm section.

Trial Run (Level IV) “Trial Run” was named the winner of the 2010 Jazz Education Network Student Composition Showcase and the 2011 United States Air Force Sammy Nestico Award. This fast swing chart uses extensive non-functional harmony, drawing on the harmonic techniques of early 20 th-century classical music.It also utilizes various mixed section groupings set against each other, emphasizing blend and tuning between the various sections of the ensemble. The funk/blues-based guitar solo affords the soloist a rare opportunity to use distortion, while the tenor solo presents a challenge to a soloist of any ability level. 8 Brass

(Level V) This arrangement was commissioned by its composer, Glenn Wilson, in 2009. To create this composition, Glenn morphed the source song “If I Only Had a Brain” using two jazz classics, “Giant Steps” and “Seven Steps to Heaven” to create this piece. Because of the inherent humor found in the original song and Glenn’s treatment of it, I sought to take the humor further with this arrangement. This rowdy arrangement makes extensive use of metric modulation and quotes from other songs found in the “Wizard of Oz”. 8 Brass

It's You or No One, <em> by Dan Keberle</em> Lament For Emmett Till,<em> by Jim White</em> Deacon Lunchbox,<em> by Jim White</em>



(Level IV) for band, V for soloists (8 Brass, lead trumpet high D written) A fast swing tune arranged in the same style as recorded by Dexter Gordon on his album Doin’ Alright. This chart features Dexter Gordon’s solo arranged as a sax section soli, followed by alto 1 and tenor 1 solos, and culminating with the two trading fours over very nice full band background support. There is also an unaccompanied chorus with just the two soloists before going back to the head. If you have strong bebop soloists in the alto 1 and tenor 1 chairs, this is a great chart to showcase them together.

(Level IV) This is a chart for flashy soloing. It uses simple diatonic chord changes (albeit in a number of keys), and it moves at a rapid pace (MM=260). Jazz or rock tones will work equally well for the soloists. There are some double- and triple stops and full chords, but they are all manageable, and all in whole notes. Guitar 5 is largely a rhythm part; all the voicings are written out.To allow for two soloists, take the DS from bar 201 back to bar 75; the first and second parts swap roles, and their parts are essentially duplicates for that stretch of the chart. The section at m210 is call-and-response; if the players hear and feel the responses in a dotted eighth note rhythm, it will become clear. Timing is crucial. 5 Guitars, Bass & Drums

A fast swing combo tune with a challenging, contemporary chord progression for solos written in all parts. Arranged for rhythm section and three horns (alto sax, trumpet and trombone) but also includes alternate parts (trumpet for alto sax, tenor sax for trumpet and tenor sax for trombone). With its crisp forte ending, this tune programs well as a set closer.

Yanomamo,<em> by James Greeson</em> A Tentative Tangling Of Sinookas,<em> by Rolf Johnson</em> Salute To Satchmo,<em> by Alan D. Neveu</em>
(8 Brass) An original composition based on the changes to the classic Cherokee. It is in a double-time samba feel which shifts into a fast swing for 32 bars. The saxophone parts are a bit high, but playable. The rhythms are a bit tricky, and if desired, could be simplified somewhat.

(Level III)  Originally written for the Penfield High School Jazz Ensemble in Penfield, NY, directed by Jim Doser. The piece was written to feature the foremost Louis Armstrong practitioner of our day, Byron Stripling. Three original compositions in the style of Louis Armstrong are strung together into a medley. The piece starts out slowly as a funeral dirge and ends "hot" with a fast closer. In some sections of the piece, many band members are instructed to play in a group improvisation style. This helps achieve the sound and feel of Louis Armstrong's music while getting the whole band involved in the process. 9 Brass

Softly, As in a Morning Sunrise,<em> by Brett Stamps</em> Oleo,<em> by Brett Stamps</em> Irony Is Needed,<em>by Jose Bevia</em>
Oleo, by Brett Stamps
Our Price: $55.00
(Level IV) This is a hard swinging contemporary jazz arrangement with lots of ensemble twists and turns, including Latin rhythm tags (Lydian mode) following most ensemble choruses, modulation, and stop time. The shout chorus builds from offsetting rhythmic riffs between trumpet and saxes to full tutti over two choruses, including a sax soli. Solo sections include tenor sax and bass (guitar or piano can substitute). Ending concludes with a vamp for an improvised tenor sax solo, leading to a cadenza with strong finish.  (Level IV) If you’re looking for a showpiece for the entire band that highlights the rhythm section, this arrangement should fit your needs. The melody is performed by those instruments least likely to be featured: bass, piano, and guitar play the A sections (assisted eventually by saxes) and the trombone section takes the bridge (you will need a strong lead trombone – 4th trumpet doubles the part if needed). After open solo sections for sax (any member of section), brass (trumpet or trombone), and the ensemble takes over with a variety of ideas including bebop quotes (Salt Peanuts), sax solis and tuttis. After a rhythm solo (bass, guitar or piano), a second shout chorus ensues. Both shout choruses include dynamic contrasts. 8 Brass

(8 Brass) This piece was the winner of the 2007 BMI Foundation Charlie Parker Composition Prize. It has been built on three themes that are announced in the introduction and manipulated throughout the composition. The arch form (intro, A, B, C, piano solo, C, B, A, coda) and tonal arrangement (centricity around D) have been inspired by the string quartets of Bela Bartok. This piece moves through Even 8th, Fast Swing and Latin time feels as well.

(Level 5) This is a burning fast, wordless, very challenging modern bebop head as recorded by the Yellowjackets on Four Corners. The melody may be divided up into several small groups for variety and relief! Other than the unison and two-part head, there is a "shout chorus" and an improv section that may be opened up. Your rhythm section is key to making this one work in light of the burning swing tempo (almost straight-eight) that must be maintained. Well worth the hard work it takes to learn if your group is really ready for a challenge! SSATTB with rhythm section.
