Various Composers - Alfred Publishing Co., Inc.
, What a great value! 12 outstanding charts for beginning jazz ensemble by leading arrangers! A variety of styles are included from swing to rock. There's even a nice warm-up to get your students off to a great start. For flexibility, the charts are written for full band instrumentation, but work just fine with only nine players. Optional parts are available for flute, tuba, French horn and baritone T.C. Suggested solos are offered as well, and the conductor's book contains a full length recording of all the titles. Titles include: Loosen Up; One O'clock Jump; Li'l Darlin; El Gato Gordo; Pink Panther; Over The Rainbow; Rock This Town; Chattanooga Choo Choo; James Bond; Jazzy Merry Christmas; Peter Gunn and The Judge.
