That's Mr. Blakey, to You! by Rick Helzer. For jazz ensemble (trumpet (or alto saxophone), alto saxophone (or tenor saxophone), trombone (baritone saxophone), piano, bass and drums). Swing. Score and set of parts. Published by UNC Jazz Press (NC.609). An exciting up-tempo piece that blends three different rhythmic styles in the theme and the solo sections. The chord changes are very challenging and require a working knowledge of altered modes and chromatic modal harmony concepts. The solo section of the arrangement closes with an ostinato section that features the drums accompanied by the rest of the sextet. Programmatically, this piece would work well as a set or performance closer. Trumpet (or Alto Sax), Alto Sax (or Tenor Sax) Trombone (Baritone Sax) with Piano, Bass and Drums.

Fancy That by Bert Ligon. For jazz ensemble. This edition: Trumpet range to E6. Calypso, Jazz, Funk. Level 4. Score and set of parts. Published by UNC Jazz Press (NC.691). (Level IV) A fun, calypso/funk tune with room for an alto solo. A marimba part is included. After the solo section, the rhythm section plays funky stop time for a new theme stated by the trombones. The groove resumes under the new theme and leads back to the recapitulation of the original theme. The second theme returns with piano alone and builds to the end with alto sax soloing through the end. A foot-tapper and audience pleaser; they will sing as they leave the concert. Ending has optional higher note for capable trumpet sections. 8 Brass.

Hope Rising by Jim McNeely. For big band. This edition: Trumpet range to F6. 6/4 time signature, Even 8ths, Odd Meter, Jazz. Level 5. Score and set of parts. Published by UNC Jazz Press (NC.877). (Level V) This piece was commissioned by the Des Moines Big Band (led by trumpeter Jim Oatts), and recorded by them on their CD D.S.M. Big Band...In the Red. The groove is 6/4 even eighth notes. The solo sections employ modern, post be-bop harmony which will challenge an aggressive soloist (tenor sax, trumpet). Much of the bass part is vamp-oriented; a strong-reading bass player should really eat it up! 9 Brass.
