New for Young Jazz Band Thursday, October 13, 2011
Are you in need of some new repertoire to energize your Young Jazz Band? Check out one of these great charts, endorsed by Ben–”The Jazz Guy” here at Stanton’s:
by Lennie Niehaus
Grade 2, 60365 $45
In the Kendor Jazz Gateway series, this a wonderful chart to introduce young jazz musicians to the subtleties of Basie-style swing!
SACK OF WOE
arr. Mike Kamuf
Grade 2, 36034 $44
Early 60′s boogaloo jazz is an infectious style that grabs you and won’t let go! This Cannonball Adderley tune combining swing and straight 8th note elements is right up that alley.
WHEN BIG BANDS RULED THE EARTH
by Larry Neeck
Grade 2.5, 032-3992-00 $48
An up tempo swinger from Barnhouse that sounds much more mature than the difficulty level would indicate. Great shout chorus!
arr. Paul Murtha
Grade 3, 07011843 $45
A great adaptation ofÂ a classic funk hit from the 70s! It retains the signature horn riffs and licks but pares it down a bit to make it accessible to younger players.
