May's Way by Jeff Jarvis. For jazz ensemble with optional flute, F horn, tuba & vibes. Jazz Gateway Series. Swing. Easy. Score and set of parts. Published by Kendor Music Inc (KN.32190).
Written to coincide with Shelly Berg's successful Chop-Monster jazz language tutor, the sax duet writing in this blues original pays tribute to legendary big band writer Billy May. Saxes should strive to play scooped notes uniformly; lead alto may exaggerate the scoops a bit more than the other section members. Solo changes are provided for all instruments, and a guitar chord chart by Jim Greeson is included in each set.
