These are some of my original scores. Each one of these was, of course, the most important thing I ever worked on (at the time!). Be sure to check my my charts for Middle School Jazz Band and my Featured Products.
A folk tune scored for Clarinet, Soprano Sax, Trumpet, Bass
Clarinet, Drums, Piano/Guitar, and Bass. Inspired by the band
Väsen from Sweden, the piece flows in a fast 12/8 with some
occasional odd meters. It eventually transcends the folk and
ventures into some funky territory to feature the guitarist and
then into a short horn featurette.
March of the Flower Children
A lyrical march for concert/symphonic band. Evocative of the great marches of the past, with some inventive twists and lush harmonic voicings, this chart is perfect for a good high school group, college, or even a community band.
A melodious and jazzy little modern shuffle tune written for a young, developing ensemble, this chart is well-suited for middle school jazz bands and/or a young high school group.
Scored for Trumpets 1, 2, 3, Clarinet, Alto Sax 1 & 2, Tenor Sax 1 & 2, Baritone Sax, Piano, Bass, Drums, Guitar. Additional transcribed parts can be made available, just ask!
The shuffle feel gives this tune a sophisticated and modern sound. Once your players get to know the interplay of the lines they will dig in and have a great time.
