      Musicroom Reviews

      This is a well written book, with useful information which is hard to find in other places! It is really helpful and is logically set out with lots of good examples of the various techniques.

      Arranging Jazz For Large Ensemble gives readers the necessary skills to write for big bands. Although it is an advanced subject, 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 helps beginner-writers to fully understand the “big picture” of the arrangement. Arrangers of all levels can benefit from these chapters and musical examples. The book helps you memorize sound texture and effects as well as the writing techniques. As work through 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.
