Audio Sample:

Edition: Jazz Sextet Arrangement (3 Horns with Rhythm)

Description: Swing - Medium Difficult

Publisher: Second Floor Music/Hal Leonard

This edition of OTB features pianist RENEE ROSNES, who has been featured with J.J. Johnson and saxophonists Joe Henderson and Wayne Shorter as well as on her own records for Blue Note. These sextets by Rosnes and Mossman are challenging but accessible, and give a good presentation of contemporary jazz harmonies.


A simple blues melody is set in a maze of twists and turns: sudden dynamic shifts, a totally independent line in the third part, an intro that starts with the first 2 horn parts and gradually adds one voice at a time, and many unusual orchestral combinations. If your group hasn't mastered the art of playing independently within an ensemble, they'll be much closer after tackling this one.

SOLOS: In keeping with the overall nature of the arrangement, the solo changes contrast a straight-ahead bluesy A section with a demanding, harmonically complex bridge.
