Broadway by Special Arrangement is a collection of eleven songs arranged for the instrumentalist wanting to play in a Jazz style -without the need to learn to improvise. The 'classically' trained amateur or professional performer, or the intermediate-level student (III-IV), will enjoy playing these expertly arranged Broadway melodies just for fun or to include as a light piece on a recital or solo-feature concert performance.
The ballads and medium-tempo and up-tempo swing tunes are arranged with a play through of the melody followed by a written-out 'variation chorus, a return to the melody, and an earcatching ending.
The piano, bass, and drum accompaniment CD will put you right in the band. The CD includes both the solo instrument with the accompaniment track and an accompanimet-alone track for each selection. The inexperienced performer can learn the appropriate style of playing and be comfortable playing in the jazz style before playing along with the rhythm section track.
All of the instrument books are for the most part compatible, with only minimal changes in the 'variation' section to accommodate the ranges (sometimes including octave options) and unique characteristics of the instruments -but all can be played together.
The three-line piano accompaniment book provides a rhythmic 'comping' with chord voicings written out plus the flute part to help in following the soloist, or even for the pianist to take a chorus.
For the jazzer, here is a chance to learn Broadway tunes and to explore playing ballads and the swing style of popular standards. Chord symbols are included to allow for improvistation.
By combining his jazz-keyboard chops, his 25 years as an instrumental instructor, and his superb composing and arranging skills, Carl Strommen presents a fully playable, exciting, and tastefully arranged collection of these immortal and memorable Broadway titles.

As a sucker for a good melody I love the selection of music. The arrangements sound great and I have found them all to be playable with some being more challenging than others and so helping me to develop my playing.
I want some more tunes like this

Good arrangements, a pleasure for every sax player. Songs are long enough and very interesting.
Slow & fast bigband tunes for the intermediate player.
The summertime arrangement is very good.
Try also the Gerschwin edition.

Rating Review
Customer Rating Absolutely amazing! I brought this as a recommendation from my sax teacher and it is really good. The arrangements are well done and I particularly like the solos in each song. Compliments the Gershwin book well.

Customer Rating I completely agree with the other reviewer - excellent value for money.
Arrangements are fun and not too difficult - Grade 5 to 6 should have no difficulty. Check out "Summertime" it's my particular favourite.
Recommend the "Gershwin" & "Film Songs" playalongs in the same series.
