    very well done. too bad there aren't more play along sets out there like these. I played in bands that did this kind of music and it is much like that. brings back memories when I played these kinds of things with them. the only difference is I think...

    they could have made the tunes much longer and given us more tunes per book with most play things they sell out there for our money. tunes were well arranged and had instrumental variety, just they should have been longer in length/duration...like they were when I played in all my concert bands. they could do a little more to make them more advanced and more a challenge for people so we can challenge our own abilities to ourselves. too many of the play along sets are made more on the easy side.

    I agree 100% with Fred Mills!!! We all need many more of these fine arrangements and much less of the "bell cues"

  • January 04, 2009 Strommen Arrangements are perfect for small jazz grp

    I have all 3 of Carl Stommen's by special arrangement jazz collections, Gershwin, Movie Songs and Broadway. His arrangements are wonderful, folks love to hear them performed. I recommend them to all my musician friends.
