5.0 out of 5 stars Great book with great recording examples, 13 May 2005

This review is from: ARRANGING FOR LARGE JAZZ ENSEMBLE (Paperback)
bands. Although it is an advance subject in the Arranging area, the book starts with writing for unison and octaves. There are also great chapters about background writing with riff and guide tone lines. The Shout Chorus chapter provides beginners writers to fully understand the arrangement "big picture". All levels of arrangers can benefit from these chapters and their musical examples. They will help you memorize sound texture and effects as well as the writing techniques. As you go over the other chapters, you can easily assimilate their content and apply them successfully. It's unique and well written book, one of the best of its kind.

5.0 out of 5 stars A MUST!, 14 Sep 2010
This review is from: ARRANGING FOR LARGE JAZZ ENSEMBLE (Paperback)
Very helpfull to everybody who wishes to arrange for jazz ensemble. After studying the whole book you REALLY can arrange. It lacks only a link to modern notation programs like Sibelius to use their arranging features.

5.0 out of 5 stars great book, background requiered, 31 Aug 2010
This review is from: ARRANGING FOR LARGE JAZZ ENSEMBLE (Paperback)
This is buy far the best book to date about writing for Big-Band. However, if you are not familiar with jazz fundamentals then you might want to cover these topics first, as they are only briefly discussed at the beginning. I especially liked the systematic way of approaching the subject - like voicings, soli writing and shout couruses. The complete analysis of an arrangement can serve as a template for the student for his own writing. All in all, very educating and comprehensive.
