Moon Dreams [Octet] by Miles Davis. Edited by Jeffrey Sultanof. Arranged by Gil Evans. For octet [6 horns with rhythm section] (Horn 1: Alto Saxophone, Horn 2: Baritone Saxophone, Horn 3: Trumpet, Horn 4: Horn in F (or Trumpet), Horn 5: Trombone, Horn 6: Tuba (or Bass Trombone), Bass, Drums). Ballad. Difficult. Published by Jazz Lines Publications (JL.JLP-8010). Gil Evans set up shop in his small New York apartment above a Chinese laundry acting as an adviser to a group of jazz musicians. Evans was already well-known as an adventurous arranger who took inspiration from classical composers of the day. Miles Davis was trying to separate himself from the bebop club scene, of which he was a part in Charlie Parker's groups. In 1947 Davis and Evans organized a group of musicians into a working nonet and began to rehearse some new material. The musicians that were in the group included: Miles Davis (trumpet), Mike Zwerin (trombone), Bill Barber (tuba), Junior Collins (French horn), Gerry Mulligan (baritone saxophone), Lee Konitz (alto saxophone), John Lewis (piano), Al McKibbon (bass), and Max Roach (drums). The emphasis of this group was the arrangements and the re-definition of the current jazz scene. They invented what came to be known as the 'cool school.' In 1949 Davis enlisted Gerry Mulligan, John Lewis, Gil Evans and Johnny Carisi to write 12 arrangements that were recorded by Capitol Records. Three recording sessions over the next year yielded the famous 'Birth of the Cool' record. Here is Gil Evans' arrangement of the Johnny Mercer/Chummy MacGregor standard 'Moon Dreams' engraved from the manuscript - this is not a transcription. This is a brilliant arrangement full of color and orchestral nuance. In fact, it's quite astounding at the layers and depth of sound Gil was able to achieve with just 8 instruments (there's no piano in this arrangement). The harmonies and the rhythms are very sophisticated and impressionistic. This piece has been arranged for alto saxophone, baritone saxophone, trumpet, horn in F, trombone, tuba, bass, drums. Recognizing that not every band has access to a horn, we've included a second trumpet part as an alternate for the horn part. And, a bass trombone would easily be able to play the tuba part in the event that you don't have that instrument at your disposal. This piece features a brief baritone sax solo (as played by Gerry Mulligan) that has been written out in full, though chords have been indicated for an ad-lib solo. The last part of the arrangement features arco bass. This classic, Gil Evans' masterpiece arrangement re-defined jazz and popular music arranging and should be a part of every band's library. This Jeffrey Sultanof Master Edition comes with complete performance and historical notes.

New Girl by The Duke Pearson Big Band. Edited by Jeffrey Sultanof. Arranged by Duke Pearson. For big band. Swing. Advanced. Published by Jazz Lines Publications (JL.JLP-8007). Here is one of Duke Pearson's best compositions, exactly as he arranged it for his big band in 1967. This publication has been engraved directly from the original manuscript, this is not a transcription. This is from the original Blue Note liner notes: "Listen carefully to what New Girl has to say. This composition builds around a number of beautiful choruses on trumpet by Burt Collins. Catch Mickey Roker's accents alongside the wonderful ensemble work of the exciting brass and sax figures. They lead into the tenor work of Lew Tabackin, Duke's fine piano flow, the out choruses of Burt Collins, and finally the backbone of the entire band, Mickey Roker's support. This composition does musically what a new girl would do - bring out the excitement in your musical genes." The chart opens with alto 1 and tenor 1 on flute and baritone on clarinet. There is some alternating between 3/4 and 4/4 for the first 8 bars and towards the end of the arrangement as well. The melody is then picked up by the lead tenor and trumpet 5 - who is the star of the show. In fact, this chart would work great for a guest trumpet player. The whole band then comes in and leads up to the lengthy trumpet solo. After the trumpet solo comes a tenor solo then a one-chorus piano solo. The band then plays the melody out through a great shout chorus. In the original arrangement there was no guitar part; however, we have included one as an option. Ranges:Trumpet 1 to F#6 Trombone 1 to B4.

Hors D'oeuvre by Bert Ambrose. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band. Swing. Medium. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-1333).

If you are ever called to play a roaring 20's style number and are bored with the Charleston, this chart will have the dance floor filled with dancers in no time. Style: .
