What a rare and great composing tool!!
Inside the Score is a that rare learning tool so hard to come by, a cd of great big bands playing through compositions by Sammy Nestico, Thad Jones and Bob Brookmeyer, the accompanying scores, and insightful notes on what the composer/arranger was doing. It goes from simpler to harder charts...
