Flexible Band Arrangements
These are flexible arrangements of original compositions, designed for use in small or medium-sized jazz bands.
The scores have a number of staves, each being an independent line (e.g. melody, countermelody, harmony, riff).
From the score, parts have been generated for the following: flute; clarinet and soprano sax (often combined); alto, tenor, and baritone saxes; trumpet, trombone; rhythm (piano/bass/guitar) – these being the instruments most likely to be included in a jazz band.
Some lines are more appropriate for particular instruments, others less so. Each instrumental part includes only the lines which can realistically work for that instrument.
The idea is that any band can then put together its own arrangement of the piece, taking into account the instruments in the band and the type of arrangement that is wanted.
The Flexible Band Arrangements are found in the Jazz/Latin category of sheet music.
The music is photocopiable, but only for use within the context of the band for which the original purchase has been made – see the copyright notice on the front page of the score.
