It's Just Talk by Pat Metheny. Arranged by Bob Curnow. For jazz ensemble (5-4-4-4). The Pat Metheny Big Band Series. Concert/Rock/Fusion. Grade 4-5. Score and set of parts. Published by Sierra Music (S1.SMP-122).
Metheny's tunes and rhythmic feels are perfect for Big-Band settings. This tune just ROARS!! It can feature up to 3 soloists, has great changes and exciting ensemble writing... which all make for an ideal closer. And it isn't all that difficult to play! The trumpet range is reasonable, and so are the rhythms. 5-4-4-4. As recorded on Bob Curnow's L.A. Big Band, The Music of Pat Metheny and Lyle Mays,.
