Edition: Jazz Big Band Arrangement

Description: Difficult

Publisher: Walrus Music Publishing

This composition, in four uninterrupted movements, is a suite based upon the sounds of 1960s detective television scores. It includes musical representations of a mysterious search for clues, a jazz club complete with a femme fatale, a police chase scene, and a capture which brings all the themes back into play for the finale. Moving through a multitude styles and changes, the work is a fast-paced colorful example of genre writing for big band with solo space for alto sax, piano, drums, and percussion.


The John Wasson Strata Big Band recording 'Chronicles' is available at the Summit Records website.
