Bundle Description

A bundled collection of FOUR Jazz Combo Arrangements, suitable for either high school or middle school jazz combos. These are original compositions/arrangements based upon chord progressions from jazz standards, professionally notated in Finale. (Over 80 pages of music!)

These are wrtten with 3 different horn parts, each duplicated by two instruments: a melody (Trumpet 1, Alto Sax 1), upper harmony (Trumpet 2, Alto Sax 2), and optional lower harmony (Trombone 3, Tenor Sax 3). Alternatively, you can swap parts with like-keyed instruments: e.g. have tenor sax or clarinet play the Trumpet 1 part, bari sax play the Alto 2 part, etc. These could even be used as full jazz band charts by doubling parts for whatever additional instruments you have.

Jazz scales are written for soloists, and each arrangement includes jazz solos for players new to improvisation. Simplified voicings for piano and guitar make them playable by everyone, and a bass line is included in the piano part for "key bass" if no bass player is available.

Coyote - a funk-rock chart inspired by Freddie Hubbard's "Red Clay." A great feature for the rhythm section and easy chord changes so soloists can stretch out.

What Child Is This? - a jazz waltz update of the traditional Christmas carol. Although the tune includes multiple chord changes, players can use just one major scale to create a solo with good results.
