The solo space is reserved for tenor sax. Soprano sax is required. 10386208 Jazz Ensemble . . . . . . . . A 60.00 Baby Elephant WalkHenry Mancini/arr. Mike Tomaro. Everyone knows this Henry Mancini favorite, but not like this! Mike Tomaro has gleefully twisted the well-known melody into a New Orleans- style second line groove for jazz ensemble!

This is a dynamic and fun chart and will be a real kick for the band (especially the trumpets) and audience. 10028193 Jazz Ensemble . . . . . . . . A 70.00 Beneath the MaskBob Washut. Bob Washut's Beneath the Mask is a very enjoyable, somewhat ECM-style chart for proficient groups that features an even-eighth jazz waltz style that highlights lead alto and guitar and/or piano on extended improvised solos. While trading 3/4 against 4/4 polyrhythms, this outstanding original contains tons of musical content with soaring ensemble passages, dynamic contouring and rhythmic interest. The lead trumpet player is showcased with some soaring lyrical lines, and all trumpets double on flugelhorn. This is a colorful chart that will definitely be a favorite for better groups! 10595112 Jazz Ensemble . . . . . . . . A 56.00 n BodysnatchersRadiohead/arr. Fred Sturm.
