Edition: JAZZ COMBO ARRANGEMENT (4 HORNS WITH RHYTHM)
Description: SWING - MEDIUM
Publisher: Hal Leonard
These challenging Jack Montrose arrangements are straight from the original version, recorded on the Pacific Jazz label, of the CLIFFORD BROWN classics. Montrose earned a solid reputation as an arranger, working with West Coast jazz giants Chet Baker and Art Pepper, as well as this session with Brown. SEPTET INSTRUMENTATION:
Rhythm Section: Piano, Bass, Drums
FULL SCORE [JRTS]* Set in Clifford Brown's original key of E-flat, his great example of contrapuntal jazz gives everyone their own independent part. Every member of the group must play their own part with confidence and yet blend into the big picture. The melody at the end is set in an entirely different fashion from that of the beginning, requiring special attention. It also requires the rhythm section to play an active role in the contrapuntal texture rather than simply that of accompanists. SOLOS: The changes are full of II-Vs and modulate from E-flat to E to F and back to E-flat, covering a lot of harmonic ground in a single 32-bar form. * Jazz Repertory Transcription Series includes chord voicings, bass lines, drum fills and cued melody lines in rhythm section parts.
