Central City Blues/Hello [Central City Sketches #1/2] by The American Jazz Orchestra. Edited by Jeffrey Sultanof and Rob DuBoff. Arranged by Benny Carter. For big band. Swing. Medium. Score and parts. Published by Jazz Lines Publications (JL.JLP-8286-87). In 1987, Benny Carter was invited to give a concert of his music with the American Jazz Orchestra. The concert would be a career retrospective: classic music he wrote in the 1930s and '40s, compositions from the '60s, including themes he'd written for motion pictures, and a suite composed specifically for the concert. This suite, Central City Sketches, and the resulting studio-recorded CD released by Musicmasters, were praised by critics who were thrilled that Carter was still creating beautiful, swinging music at the age of eighty. Jeffrey Sultanof was present at that concert, and can attest that the audience went wild when they heard this new music that often recalled Kansas City and the swing era. The sources for these publications are the original parts, which were heavily marked up with changes and corrections that were made prior to the premiere. In one case (People Time) a score that was engraved by Phil Woods was consulted. Movements 1 and 2 - Central City Blues segue to Hello: The suite opens with Central City Blues which segues into a Basie-styled Hello. Because the blues cannot be played as a separate composition, it is combined with Hello. Central City Blues has been marked as "low-down and dirty" by the editor, and that's exactly how it ought to be played. A piano solo and a change of tempo brings us to Hello, which is Carter's homage to his friend Count Basie. Carter is quite specific about dynamics here, and they should be observed.

Foaming At The Chops by Chuck Owen. For jazz ensemble (trumpet and tenor saxophone solos). This edition: Trumpet range to E6. Blues. Chuck Owen Series. Level 4. Score and set of parts. Published by UNC Jazz Press (NC.1023). (Level 4) This scorching double-time blues was originally written for the Tonight Show Orchestra to feature Doc and Pete Christlieb, so there is plenty of solo space for the trumpet and tenor sax. The tempo is brutally fast and there is an absolutely inhuman modulation at the end of the chart (in other words, this chart has earned its title), but if you have some horses, this chart will close your concert and leave them buzzing. No doubles. 8 Brass.

Mojo Blues by Eric Richards. For jazz ensemble. This edition: Trumpet range to Eb6. Blues, Half-Time feel, Funk, Jazz, Modern. Eric Richards Series. Level 4. Score and set of parts. Published by UNC Jazz Press (NC.1109). (9 Brass) (Level 4) This chart is a blues, but one firmly rooted in the nineties. The range demands are not too difficult for the brass, but some of the rhythmic figures and the overall concept of the feel make this chart somewhat challenging. The feel should have a hint of half time funk, but the electric bass should be walking in 4 for most of the time. This kind of groove is used quite a bit by the Yellowjackets. The open solo section can feature trumpet, alto, guitar, or keyboard (ideally synthesizer). No doubles (soprano sax lead).

Written for eight brass, five saxophone (with soprano lead), piano, bass and drums.
