Silent Night - Jim Martin
This arrangement is a fresh look at an old tune. The time signature is 4/4 and the style is bossa nova. Lots of alternate changes in this one, so it is fun to solo over as well. Trumpet range is very conservative so this one can be played by younger bands too.
Jingle Bells - Jim Martin
This chart is a straight ahead swinger that features short solos in trumpet 2 and trombone 2. Trumpet ranges are conservative for the most part. The chart also features a 16 bar saxophone soli. Fun to play around the holiday season (or any season!) when you need a happy swinging tune to play.
NOTE: The audio is generated in Finale and is not a “live” recording. Consequently, the drum part will be mostly missing. Use your imagination!
Angels We Have Heard on High - David Wilken
This arrangement of “Angels We Have Heard On High” was inspired by Sonny Rollins’ classic tune “St. Thomas.” In a calypso style, this chart will feature a rhythm section player and 2nd trumpet. The lead trumpet part has a few Ds above high C.
