Volume 8 of the Jazz Workshop Series.
Sunburst (Ron McClure): This modal tune has lots of energy and makes effective use of imaginative chord/scale colors. Arranged for trumpet, tenor saxophone and trombone.
Comrade Conrad (Bill Evans): Great harmonic exercise with a memorable melody. The 12 choruses encompass all possible major and minor keys, alternating between 4/4 and 3/4 meters.
Windows (Chick Corea): Haunting jazz waltz, has been a well known jazz standard since the 70’s.
Pensativa (Clare Fischer): Bossa-Nova, recorded by many jazz musicians. The harmonic progression is strikingly colorful. Arranged for trumpet and tenor saxophone.
When I See You (Jimmy Knepper): This original ballad has a beautifully haunting quality and a really memorable melody. The form is an interesting one: abac.
Joshua (Miles Davis/Victor Feldman): The meter changes and the rapid harmonic rhythm during the bridge make this piece both challenging and fun to play. Arranged for trumpet and tenor saxophone.
