(Level IV) Nifty Fifties was composed for the University of Rochester Jazz Ensemble. The piece is blues oriented and contains sections that are reminiscent of the 1950's "West Coast" style as well as sections that are contemporary and unconventional. The entire band is able to solo over a blues progression, and trumpet 2, tenor 1, bari sax, and piano are given featured solos. This chart is designed to make an intermediate level band sound like a professional band, by allowing them to play adventuresome harmonies and extended techniques. 8 Brass.
