By James Brown

Pep band, basketball band, jazz combo, small jazz ensemble - Intermediate
By James Brown. Score, Set of Parts. 16 pages. Published by Publications (H0.287447-357400).

Item Number: H0.287447-357400


Perfect at games or a concert, this arrangement will have everyone "feeling good." For game time-outs, omit the repeat and it's just a couple of seconds over one minute. Features a Trumpet 1 solo (section or just a single player) in the middle section.

The highly-flexible "BcP-Flex" scoring* imitates the classic rock band sound by using only 4 "instruments/voices" - lead, rhythm, bass, and drums:

Lead: Flute, Clarinets, Trumpets

Rhythm: Alto Sax, Tenor Sax, Horn, Trombone/Euphonium, TC Baritone

Bass: Electric Bass/Tuba

Drums: The drum set part is not notated as it is often easier to get the drummer to "pick-up" the tune by listening to the original recording/chart.

Parts are formatted to fit in a flip-folder, but will print on letter-sized paper if you prefer to use 3-ring binders.

Easy keys with multiple courtesy accidentals and well-marked rehearsal numbers reduce the amount of time needed in rehearsal and improve performance.

This arrangement is a little more difficult than others in the series (see below).

I end up with if you buy this, I wanted to wait to see if someone purchases it before investing more time. Thanks for understanding.
