Big Band Holiday arranged by Carl Strommen. Jazz Ensemble. Jazz Ensemble; SmartMusic. Young Jazz Ensemble. Christmas; Winter. Conductor Score & Parts. 94 pages. Published by Belwin Music (AP.26863).
Big Band Holiday is the perfect holiday chart for the young jazz band. Arranger Carl Strommen has blended "Iâ€™ll Be Home For Christmas," "Santa Claus Is Coming to Town," "Have Yourself a Merry Christmas," and "Frosty the Snowman" into an easy-to-rehearse and very playable chart. The chart features brief written-out solos for trombone 2 and alto sax 1 and plenty of ensemble playing throughout. The brass range is modest with lead trumpet going up to written F on the top line. A superb chart! (4:25) This title is available in SmartMusic.
