  • December 10, 2007 What a rare and great composing tool!!

    Inside the Score is a that rare learning tool so hard to come by, a cd of great big bands playing through compositions by Sammy Nestico, Thad Jones and Bob Brookmeyer, the accompanying scores, and insightful notes on what the composer/arranger was doing. It goes from simpler to harder...

    charts and is the best book I've found on arranging for band.
