Classic Gershwin, Rhapsody in Blue is music all students should have the opportunity to hear and enjoy. The history of this composition dates back to 1924. Since then, it's been recorded and performed countless times, and now it's your turn. Take notice that master arranger Paul Cook scores it for the younger band yet still captures the essence of this beautiful melody, all the color, and even the trademark counter-melody toward the end. With the exception of a brief tenor sax solo on the melody, it's all rich and full sounding ensemble, ideal for teaching phrasing. Flexible instrumentation along with easy brass demands and simple rhythms make this one a winner!
