In Stock. "Burungkaka" is an Indonesian folk song which is known throughout Malaysia. It is about an old parrot which sits near the window, singing. The children make fun of it in a good-natured manner. Originally arranged in 1997 for virtuoso jazz trombonist Albert Mangelsdorff and the WDR Big Band by Bill Dobbins. Albert had recorded the piece many years earlier on a trio recording of his. Saxes double on flute, clarinet, or bass clarinet. First alto doubles on soprano. Substitute saxophone parts are provided on the reverse side of the woodwind parts. First trumpet goes to C (2 ledger lines above staff).
Clare Fischer's "Strayhorn" is a feature that includes a completely written-out solo piano part so that it can also be played by good classically-trained musicians with little jazz experience. Jazz pianists are invited to improvise the solo. First trumpet goes to C (2 ledger lines above staff). Arranged for big band by Bill Dobbins.
Heiner Wiberny's "Here Comes Julian" is a melodious and rhythmically spirited Latin composition. The trombone and alto sax solo sections can feature any instrument. Arranged for big band by Peter Herbolzheimer.
"Doo-Dat Blues" is a hard-swinging shuffle that is reminiscent of those great Thad Jones charts. Solos are for piano and alto, but it can easily be opened up for other soloists. Young bands and professionals alike will have fun with this swinging minor blues.
The opening section of Fred Lipsius's "Stellar Tune" is played by trumpets in harmon mutes and optional flutes over a Metheny-like Latin groove. Solos are provided for tenor saxophone and trumpet. A contrapuntal section builds all the way to the end. Arranged by big band by Mike Titlebaum.
