T's Waltz - PDF Download, by Erik Applegate Tale Of The Open Road - PDF Download, by Erik Applegate ...And Especially - Download PDF, by Erik Applegate

(8 Brass) In 4/4 despite the title, this is a hard-swinging, bluesy, audience-pleasing chart, similar in vibe to some of the music of the Clayton-Hamilton Jazz Orchestra. It features tenor all the way through (the ³T¹ is Stanley Turrentine), playing over an infectious blues groove. The ensemble interjects brief melodic statements and adds backgrounds that build to a great climax. An accessible chart for high school players, but very satisfying for college and pro bands as well. Written for the Colorado Jazz Orchestra.

Tale Of The Open Road (9 Brass) A sophisticated contemporary piece with creative architecture and orchestral colors, reminiscent of the Pat Metheny Group. A haunting chant-like melody played by solo piano and then joined by tenor continues to develop over a straight 3/4 (or 6/8) groove. This leads to a tenor solo beginning over a bass vamp that moves into the changes of the tune. A piano solo continues from the tenor solo and leads to a development section with a memorable melody. Commissioned by Gene Aitken for the 2008 UNC/Greeley Jazz Festival All-Stars, and recorded by UNC Jazz Lab Band I on their upcoming CD.

After the head and a memorable sax soli, there is solo space for drums and bass (the bass solo section, with medium-difficulty changes, can be opened up for any additional or alternate soloist). After the solos, there is a grooving shout chorus that builds to an exciting finish.
