Conductor Score & Parts
2 (Medium Easy)
Warner Bros. Publications selected the six patriotic songs in this Jazz Superset #5 to provide music for the jazz ensemble that is accessible and suitable for a variety of occasions, tempos and styles. Arranger Mike Lewis has paid special attention not only to musical details, bult also to the jazz style of each of these patriotic songs. Although jazz harmonies and stylistic considerations are incorporated into these arrangements, each melody maintains its original integrity. Written for standard instrumentation (5/4 4/4,) these arrangements are playable with only six brass. Optional parts are included for flute, tuba, French horn, and baritone horn treble clef. This Super Set is designed for the medium level; however, professional ensembles will find this arrangement an invaluable asset to their libraries as well. Features "America (My Country 'Tis of Thee)," "America the Beautiful," "The Star-Spangled Banner," "Battle Hymn of the Republic," "American Patrol," "God Bless the U.S.A." (11:57)
