Audio Sample:

Edition: Jazz Sextet Arrangement [3 Horns with Rhythm]

Description: Latin - 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. The sextets by Rosnes and Mossman are challenging but accessible, and give a good presentation of contemporary jazz harmonies.


Intricate counterpoint, lush voicings, complex harmonies, and a modern melody are merged into a chart that's very enjoyable to perform. This is a great choice for incorporating modern harmony into a performance without becoming inaccessible to an audience.

SOLOS: The changes are similar to those in much of today's Latin music and they encourage beautiful spontaneous melodies. They are full of colorful extensions and unusual root movements that give a skilled improviser lots of interesting raw material to work with as well as a good introduction to modern harmony for a less experienced soloist.
