Solos are in guitar (with optional tenor 2) and trumpet 4. One thing we do that is fun are dueling trumpets or dueling trombones (that can be heard in provided mp3 file). One school added an elec. bass solo before the trumpets, and it was great. Be creative!
5 saxes (no doubles), 4 trumpets, 3 trombones, 1 bass trombone, piano, guitar, bass and drums
This book includes all nine titles recorded on my first album, Evanescence. The book opens with an interview conducted by composer/arranger/educator, Fred Sturm. Along with the book, you will receive streaming access to interviews I've conducted with many of the musicians who played and were featured on this recording. I also created an audio (streamed) lecture, where I go through each of the titles and give a little insight into what I was thinking in writing each of these nine works. Hopefully this extra content will help illuminate interesting things for anyone looking to closely study these scores.
The titles included in this book are as follows:
