What News - Arr & Comp By Reg Schwager composed by Dave Mcmurdo. Dave Mcmurdo Jazz Orchestra Series. Medium To Advanced Level Big Band Chart. Published by Walrus Music Publishing (WA.54960).
Up tempo tune based on the changes of a familiar ballad. Challenging unison lines with solo room for piano, baritone, trumpet, and tenor. No doubles. Recorded by the Dave McMurdo Jazz Orchestra, Different Paths, on Sackville records. (Five Reeds, Five Trumpets, Four Trombones, Four Rhythm + opt. 5th Trbn on some of the arrangements - however they'll all work with Four Trombones.) Most of this music requires doubling and some pretty heavy duty listening skills and I would rate them demanding both earwise - technically - Dave McMurdo.
