Stanton’s “Jazz Guy” recommends any of these challenging new charts for your advanced jazz ensemble:
Rick Hirsch, Jazz Ensemble Series Gr.5
Stanton’s Sheet Music is now distributing the music of writer, Rick Hirsch. This chart is a lovely, programmatic piece with a light ethereal feeling. Written for five flugelhorns throughout, this is a great chart for your tenor sax soloist to stretch out a bit.
arr. Fred strum, Radiohead Jazz Project Gr.4
One of the coolest new things out there this year comes from Sierra Music Publications. It’s called the Radiohead Jazz Project, featuring incredible arrangements of music of the band Radiohead from all of the top writers represented by Sierra. See and listen to the entire listing by going to www.stantons.com and typing Radiohead Jazz Project into the keyword field in the Advanced Search.
AS IT IS
arr. Bob Curnow, Pat Metheny Series Gr.5
Pat Metheny’s music lends itself to the big band genre and Bob Curnow has proven to be a master of doing just that. This a a multi-meter work with an inspiring, uplifting theme that repeats and crescendos to a powerful and affirming ending. Big, expansive tenor sax solo!
