Audio Sample:

Edition: Jazz Big Band Arrangement

Description: Swing - Medium

Publisher: Walrus Music Publishing

This is a medium blues swing chart in the key G, dedicated to the great trumpet player Maynard Ferguson. Scored for 5 saxes, 4 trumpets, 4 trombones, and rhythm, no doubles. There is an optional bass solo cadenza at the beginning followed by a piano solo into a great melody in a blues riff style. There is a challenging sax soli section. Solo sections are open. There is a drum solo with horn backgrounds. The trumpet section is not written in the high register as in Maynard's band, and the highest note for the lead trumpet is concert G throughtout the chart with one high D in the last measure. This is a good closer for the first set and is a great chart for any college or pro bands.
