SMALL BAND ARRANGEMENTS SERIES B

All Small Band arrangements are £15 unless otherwise stated. These arrangements are scored for FIVE FRONT LINE, playable by: OCTET (trumpet, trombone, three saxes and rhythm) or FIVE SAXES AND RHYTHM

NB: Normally speaking, unless the title specifies saxes only, or octet only, they can be played by either formation. However, some of the earlier arrangements may not have had the trumpet part transposed for alto, and the trombone part transposed for tenor, so it may be necessary for you to do this yourself. Occasionally the trumpet part may go too high for alto, in which case it should be played by soprano.

SaxSection Plus ARRANGEMENTS SERIES B

All SaxSection arrangements are £15 unless otherwise stated.

These titles are scored for five saxophones and rhythm. Some titles may have soprano lead. The titles asterisked contain saxophone solis. Those not asterisked normally will have alternative parts for trumpet and trombone. Since too many saxophone solis can tire the ear, repertoire is best consisting of a mixture of both types of writing.
