  • Make It Good

    This is not a transcription. This up tempo chart will certainly bring the best out of your players. On the "Now Hear This" recording for Blue Note there is a tenor solo followed by a baritone sax solo, we have decided to retain the original tenor part and move that solo to an open section (which is indicated in the manuscript).An odd form consisting of a 16-bar section followed by a 14-bar section, making a 30-bar form.At the end of the tune there is an improvised cadenza by both the tenor and baritone saxes. The ranges are quite high. Learn More
  • Minor League

    This up-tempo swing chart will certainly bring the best out of your players. Based around a C minor blues, this advanced-level arrangement features beautifully contrasting sectional interplay as well as punchy brass. A strong reading drummer is essential to carry this off. It also has an optional ope solo section on a C minor blues. An optional guitar part has been included. This would make an incredible festival/competition chart to allow you to showcase the entire band. This is not a transcription. There are no sax doubles. Learn More
  • New Girl

    This Duke Pearson Big Band chart opens with alto 1 and tenor 1 on flute and baritone on clarinet (alternate parts have been included in case you don't have those doubles). There is some alternating between 3/4 and 4/4 for the first 8 bars and towards the end of the arrangement as well. The melody is then picked up by the lead tenor and trumpet 5 - who is the star of the show. The whole band then comes in and leads up to the lengthy trumpet solo. After the trumpet solo comes a tenor solo then a one-chorus piano solo. The band then plays the melody out through a great shout chorus. Learn More
