One Bad Bebop Bigband Opener is not for the faint of heart — a very difficult tune which is really impressive if you can pull it off. Screamingly fast swing tempo, solo slots for Drums, Alto Sax, Trumpet, Trombone, and Guitar (which can be taken by the piano instead). Scored for five saxes, five trumpets (screech goes to a written double G), four trombones, rhythm (including optional guitar).
mp3 performance by Augusta Jazz Project “Master of Swing” bigband under the direction of Dr. Rudy Volkmann. CD available on “Rudy Volkmann Originals.”
$52 plus shipping and handling for printed score and set of parts; $40 for pdf’s.
