Twelve outstanding arrangements for the young jazz ensemble written by experienced educational arrangers and composers. A variety of styles and tempos is included: swing, ballad, Latin, holiday, rock, and the classic Take Five with a 5/4 time signature. This collection of charts is written for full instrumentation---five saxophones, four trumpets, four trombones and four rhythm---but designed to sound full and complete with reduced instrumentation of just twelve players---four saxes, five brass, piano, bass and drums. Optional parts are available for flute, clarinet, horn, baritone horn and tuba. Rhythm section parts offer suggestions for rhythms and piano voicings, and guitar chords are included to assist young guitarists. Solos are written out for improvised sections, and there is plenty of full-sounding ensemble. The conductor's book includes full-length CD recordings. Titles are: Blues in the Night * Burritos to Go * Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas * Jumpin' at the Woodside * Jungle Boogie * Misty * Night and Day * On Green Dolphin Street * Sax to the Max * Summertime * Take Five * Tastes Like Chicken.

    The Young Jazz Collection has been an asset in my middle school jazz library. Burritos to Go, Tastes Like Chicken, Jumpin' At The Woodside, and Jungle Boogie were each programmed at some point this year. Yes, as noted in the previous comment, there is variation in difficulty between the numbers...

    , but if you are reaching for the "Green" WB Jazz Series when programming, this collection saves dollars. We are even using Jungle Boogie as a MS/HS combined number to increase retention in the building migration. I am also getting the First Year Charts for a feeder ensemble. I am pleased.

    Difficulty Level:
  • September 28, 2005 this is horrible!

    repitive boring songs, half are too hard even for an experienced musician half are too easy. Very low quality CD. Musical songs are great, but their arrangment is not. They ruined Summertime with a completely horrible bass and sax line. The Victor Lopez songs were okay, but far too easy...
