Jazz ensemble - Medium-Advanced
Composed by Walter Becker, Donald Fagan & Keith Jarrett. Arranged by Fred Sturm. The Fred Sturm Big Band Series. Rock. Score. Published by Sierra Music (S1.SMP-1211S).
The music of Steely Dan has come to Sierra Music! The late, great Fred Sturm originally arranged this for the HR Big Band (Germany), and Sierra is thrilled to add it to its catalog. Set as a slow rock/gospel, there is beautiful, lush ensemble writing througout the piece. As with most of the Steely Dan charts, there is plenty of solo space to feature your guitarist (or trumpet), and a great way to add diversity to your program. Bands and audiences alike will thoroughly enjoy "Gaucho." 5-4-4-4 (opt. marimba/vibes).
