Big Band Charts
Written for Millikin University guitarist Adam Wissman in 2015, this ethereal medium swing chart is a haunting feature for your guitarist
You will have nothing else like it in your book. The chart includes many interesting compositional devices and colors that will inspire your guitarist to employ special sound effects as he/she deems appropriate.
A contemporary straight-8th groove chart employing 5/4 and 6/4 meter throughout. Solos for Alto 1 and Guitar. This chart requires a mature band (and skilled drummer) who can handle meter changes. Interesting compositional devices make this a fun chart for the band, and a
fascinating listening experience for your audience. Lead trumpet goes to high E.
An up-tempo swing burner that is a great opener to any big band concert. The lead trumpet will need a solid high D, and the sax section will find a challenge in the sax soli. This is a fun minor blues chart that will be fun for your drummer, too.
