Description About the Composer
Bochawa - Bill Chase - Level 5 (4 Brass) Trumpet Combo - (4 Trumpets, Guitar, Organ, Bass, and Drum Set)

The Chase family and Cha-Bil publishing are pleased to publish “Bochawa” from the CHASE library on the anniversary of Bill’s 80th birthday. Special thanks to the UNC Jazz Press for taking on this project. Editor/Arranger Notes: “Bochawa” was recorded on the third and final album, “Pure Music.” This album represented a new musical direction for the band with more emphasis on solos and tighter arrangements, and less reliance on vocals to create the band’s unique sound. Bochawa was written by Bill to feature Jerry Van Blair (nickname “Bo”), Bill (“Cha”) and Wally Yohn (“Wa”). Some of the live performances have beautiful trumpet battles going nearly 10 minutes long between Bill and Jerry. When Jerry left, Jay Sollenberger stepped in to Jerry’s solo role for this song and recorded it along with Joe Morrissey and Jim Oatts in the trumpet section. The bass drum kicks off the chart with 2 counts on the kick drum at the beginning, then again in measures 3 and 6, setting the tempo for this jazz-rock piece. The editors had decided to keep the arrangement close to the recording. However, the solo sections can be extended if desired. The solo sections should build with each verse both in dynamics and intensity leading to the rhythmic phrase that closes each section. The trumpet range is demanding for both the lead and 2nd trumpets. An alternative is to have trumpet 4 do the solo work and keep trumpet 2 fresh for the climax in the later parts of the chart. Pure Music has been re-released on high-resolution Blu-Spec2 format under Sony EICP-20088. For approval to publically perform this chart please contact Cha-Bil publishing at [email protected]
