PDF Score sample:


Something Slow - free pdf jazz ensemble chart for instant download. This chart is an original composition by Jon Harpin in the Basie style. It employs the orchestration technique of 1st Trumpet doubling 1st Alto, which was used so effectively in the classic Neal Hefti tune, Li'l Darlin'. In addition, there are also some richly voiced five part sax ensembles, reminiscent of latter day Basie arrangements. This slow atmospheric number is ideal for the end of the night, either for listening or dancing. Whilst most of the arrangement is written for a full ensemble, the chart does feature an improvised 2nd Trumpet solo. There are no sax doubles. This arrangement is offered as a free pdf big band chart. Please feel free to play and perform the music at any time, in any venue.
