EASY DOES IT is an original composition for big band and featured as a set piece forthe 2001 Australian Academy Festival of Music B Grade Jazz Ensemble division.This arrangement will work equally with a reduced ensemble, as indicated ontitle page of the score.
The arrangement begins with a short intro from the rhythmsection followed by a unison statement of the head from the sax section withthe brass section taking it up later in the arrangement. This gives theplayers a chance to become familiar with the tune and provides an opportunityto work on intonation and to tighten up phrasing andarticulation. Rhythm section parts are fully notated to assist younger players.
An open solo section, with changes marked on every part,is included. Use this space to feature soloists in the group and encourage allto try their hand at improvising. Encourage students to listen to the greatjazz players to help them learn the language of jazz and develop their ownideas. Solo sheets containing written solos along witha guitar chord shapes chart are also included.
