This week I put up on YouTube a song that I wrote and recorded with my sextet. I thought I would share it with you and post the horn arrangement for you to study.
The usual practice is to have the trumpet and tenor sax parts show as transposed on the score, but since this exercise is for learning purposes I decided to show you the parts in concert. Concert, meaning, what you see is what you hear.
It's three staffs, trumpet, tenor sax, and bass. Working off just a bass part served our purposes as a guide for the whole rhythm section since it was a new original piece and we would be experimenting with the drum and keyboard parts. The bass part developed as I wrote the tune.
In the next week or so I will be doing more videos, analyzing horn arrangements that I and others have written. Thanks for being a subscriber and I hopes it's been worth your while.
