Young and developing jazz musicians can now study, learn and perform with these flexible instrumentation Christmas and holiday charts for small jazz groups arranged in various styles. At the easy to medium-easy grade levels, all arrangements are set in three-part scoring with flexible instrumentation provided for all three parts in each wind book. Alternate parts in every combination of transpositions and clefs let you build your ensemble from any combination of instruments. The solo sections are provided with changes, and also a mini-clinic for each song with a breakdown of the spelled-out chord progressions and suggested scales to use throughout each solo. Twelve transcribed solos match the recordings note-for-note, and twelve suggested solos give younger players a starting point with themes taken from the recorded solos. The 49 downloadable play-along tracks provide every instrument an opportunity to sit in with the recorded band. Not only does this collection provide outstanding performance repertoire for small jazz groups, it is a wonderful teaching tool for playing jazz and creating solos! Titles include: Deck the Halls; Good King Wenceslas; The Holly and the Ivy; Jingle Bells; Up on the Housetop and Auld Lang Syne. Very highly recommended!
