Edited by Scott Stroman, Small Band Jazz is an exciting series of 24 pieces for classroom use and performance. Using a system of variable instrumentation (3 ‘melody’ lines and rhythm section), it allows any number of instrumentalists of any combination to work together.
Published in six books of four pieces each, the pieces cover a wide range of styles, and are graded from beginners in Book 1 to advanced in Book 6.
Clear guidance, including scales or sample solos, is given to the players to assist improvisation, and a helpful preface by Scott Stroman allows even teachers with little jazz background to move into this exciting area of education. Groups will find it an invaluable source of new repertoire!
