“Gravity” Big Band Arrangement

$75.00

Description

This exciting big band arrangement of “Gravity” (originally recorded as a quartet on the 2017 JUNO-nominated album Momentum) features an unaccompanied melody on baritone saxophone, and improvised solos for guitar and drums.  The solo features a funky groove in 3/4, with a tricky 5/16 cross-rhythm superimposed in the horns and comping instruments throughout the chart.  This arrangement will be a show-stopper for your advanced jazz ensemble!
