Boogie Lady - Download PDF, <em> by Dan Keberle</em> Clockwise - Download PDF,<em> Cedar Walton arr. by Ben Markley</em> Confide in Me - PDF Download - 16 Copies,<em> by Jennifer Barnes</em>



Boogie Lady (Level IV) - Dan's arrangement of alto saxophonist and composer Erica VonKleist's super hip and cutting edge tune Boogie Lady adds a nice punch to the angular and chromatic melody.

It requires a real solid bass, piano, guitar, and drummer to lay down the two different 16th note ostinatos, as well as horns who can count! Top trumpet note is a high D . Includes space for open solos. 8 Brass

(Level III) Originally performed by the Manhattan Transfer on The Offbeat of Avenues, this is a bluesy, romping solo feature for one or several of your killer tenor soloists. Ensemble vocalists get to have fun in a mostly background vocal role throughout. This will sound especially strong with synthesized B-3 organ part and/or electric guitar. A great way to close a program! SSATB w/ rhythm section

South Carolina Blue Law (Level III) I often joke about the law that requires a jazz band to play at least one blues tune per concert (in F or Bb), in order for it to officially be a jazz concert. Here's the chart needed to round out a concert. Plenty of room for solos with options for backgrounds. Works at just about any tempo from medium to fast. 8 Brass

So Many Stars
(7 Brass) So Many Stars - Alan & Marilyn Bergman’s beautiful lyrics are probably best known through their works for Barbra Streisand. But they have indeed collaborated with numerous composers including Marvin Hamlisch and Michel Legrand. Sergio Mendez, rather surprisingly, joins the collaborators’ list. Starting with Flugel Horn solo over vamp, this poignant Bossa Nova arrangement is a perfect first song for your show, having all the vocalists walk to the stage as the vamp goes on. As performed by vocal quartet “More Than Four.” SATB with Big Band.

(Level IV) Back Home Afro-Cuban, Additional percussion players-congas and timbales, woodwind doubles 8 Brass

View all charts by Socrates Garcia


(Level IV) Homage to Tavito - Inspired by merengue-jazz virtuoso saxophonist Tavito Vasquez (1928-1995), Homage is rooted on the Dominican merengue genre. It’s written for full big band and Dominican percussion (tambora and güira). The drum set part includes an optional version (with and without the percussion). Characteristic of the genre, it features a sax soli based on a live recording by Vasquez on Pipí Franco’s tune “Arroyito Cristalino.” By unanimous consensus among Dominican jazz connoisseurs, Vásquez is the most significant innovator, a player that masterfully blended the bebop nuances onto the merengue tradition, making it sound like one single style. Homage to Tavito follows the merengue tradition navigating from an older style known as “pambiche” to “merengue derecho.” A great piece to feature an advanced saxophone section along with Caribbean flavors from Dominican Republic. 8 Brass

From Across The Street - Dominican Suite Part 3,<em> by Socrates Garcia</em> Bachata for Two - Dominican Suite Part 2,<em> by Socrates Garcia</em> Along Came Betty,<em> by Tom Matta</em>


(Level IV) From Across the Street - Rooted on the folkloric tradition of Dominican Palos or Atabales, this movement is rich on multi-layered patterns and includes lyrics at the beginning of the piece. It offers the possibility for the entire band to sing a simple repetitive phrase while a lead vocalist sings the main tune. The soloists are the soprano sax (on the alto sax 1 chair) and the percussion/drummer. An authentic rendition would require additional percussion instruments including Dominican panderos and atabales, but only the drummer could also perform it. A great closing piece for any concert! 8 Brass

View all charts by Socrates Garcia


(Level IV) Bachata for Two This movement is written for full big band, including woodwind doubles (Altos on flutes and Bb clarinets; tenors on Bb clarinets; and baritone on bass clarinet). Additionally, the rhythm section includes the bachata rhythm section (bongos, güira, and electric bass). The piece is full of the infectious rhythm played by the rhythm guitar in traditional bachata ensembles but adapted for the big band. It features the tenor sax 1 as a soloist. 8 Brass
