New Big Band tooons

I've just released four more Big Band titles. Take a listen to the excerpts below, recorded last year by a fantastic band-for-a-day right here in Central PA.

Here's a word or two about each tune. You can click through for more detailed information and to download the scores.

 

SOARING: straight 8th contemporary. mp3 excerpt

HEY-DIDDY-AHH: infectious straight-16th thing. Recently performed by Missouri All-State Jazz Band. mp3 excerpt

SUSPENDED: Minimalism for Big Band? mp3 excerpt

ASPIRE: up-beat jazz waltz. mp3 excerpt

FREE FOOD?: C-minor Calypso. Quack-quack. Recently acquired by a pro big band in Montreal. mp3 excerpt

GREAT BIG BALL...: hints of Brookmeyer. Also performed by 2011 Missouri All-State Jazz Band. mp3 excerpt
