Jazz Arrangements for
Young Big Bands

All of the following charts are for 5 Saxes (AATTB), 3 Trumpets, 3 Trombones, and Rhythm section (piano/vibes/guitar, bass, and drums) unless otherwise noted. The bari sax and 3rd trombone parts are not heavily relied on, so if your program is smaller, missing these parts will not dramatically affect the song's performance.
They are arranged to challenge typical middle school or inexperienced high school level big bands. There are lots of articulations and dynamics given. Sample score excerpts, lead trumpet, lead alto, and lead trombone parts are available in the table below. Each song contains written out solos, as well as chord changes/scales sheets for improvisational work.

All music from StewMuse will be sent as PDFs to your e-mail box. This does not happen automatically, but will within 24 hours of my having received notice of your order from PayPal or after receiving to your check or money order. If you only ordered sheet music (i.e. no CDs or stickers), your shipping fee WILL be refunded. Thanks!
