A hot contemporary swing chart on a long-form melody. The head is stated by the saxes and brass, followed by a chorus of saxophone soli. Solos get some nice backgrounds, and then the band breaks down the melody and changes. A showstopping shout chorus takes the tune out. For advanced ensembles.

For big band, 5/4/4/4, lead alto doubling soprano. Solos in Tpt. 4 and any rhythm section instrument. Lead Tpt. to written Eb6, lead Tbn. to Bb5.

Composed by Dominic Bierenga.

A groovy 7/4 funk tune with echoes of Miles. Written to evoke the gait of the mythical "Slenderman", though in this instance he appears a little "hipper-than-thou". Open solos lead to a very energetic development of the theme in a more common 4/4 which takes the tune out. For advanced ensembles.

For big band, 5/4/4/4, lead alto doubling flute. Solos in Tenor 1, Baritone, Tbn. 2 and any rhythm section instrument. Lead Tpt. to written C6, lead Tbn. to G4. Tpt. 2 uses harmon.

"Through Rose-Colored Glasses" for big band

In cart Not available Out of stock
$25.00

Composed by Dominic Bierenga.

Listen on the Music page!

A lush ballad, "Through Rose-Colored Glasses" showcases the sensitivity of your ensemble. A fluid saxophone line is laid in relief over a gorgeously voiced brass melody. Solos build energy, and a double-time section provides some space for your trumpet soloist. This gives way to a powerful ensemble declaration, then a quiet restatement of the theme brings the piece to its finish. For advanced ensembles.

For big band, 5/4/4/4, Tpt. 4 doubling flugelhorn. Solos in lead Alto (written), Pno., Tenor 2, Tpt. 2. Lead Tpt. to written E6, lead Tbn. to G5.
