Solos are in tenor and piano (optional fluegel 4). We have had every instrument play each of the solos. These solos are flexible.
5 reeds, 4 trumpets, 3 trombones, 1 bass trombone, piano, guitar, bass, drums. The flute doubling the reed 1 is minimal and can be transposed to soprano. We also included an accordion part in case you find yourself doing other pieces of mine with accordion.
This book includes all nine titles recorded on my first album, Evanescence. The book opens with an interview conducted by composer/arranger/educator, Fred Sturm. Along with the book, you will receive streaming access to interviews I've conducted with many of the musicians who played and were featured on this recording. I also created an audio (streamed) lecture, where I go through each of the titles and give a little insight into what I was thinking in writing each of these nine works. Hopefully this extra content will help illuminate interesting things for anyone looking to closely study these scores.
The titles included in this book are as follows:
