Lifeblood has echoes of Maria Schneider's earlier works in a chart that's approachable by more bands than many of her great charts (i.e. no woodwind doubles, modest brass ranges).

This work has rich, dense harmonies; lyrical melodies over top of a brisk, moving rhythm section; and modal solo changes for your tenor and trombone improvisers. Lifeblood works great mid-set. It's also makes an unusual–but effective–opener.

Many thanks to Chris Merz and his always-superb University of Northern Iowa Jazz Band I for their stellar recording heard below. It's from their 2012 CD The Hard Way.

  • Alto Saxes 1 & 2
  • Tenor Saxes 3 & 4
