Ed Zachary Meets Gregory Peccary by Rich Willey arranged by Gordon Goodwin is a driving jazz/rock tune with some interesting chord changes for your soloists during the open solo section (with or without solo backgrounds).
Written for five saxophones, five trumpets (solo 5th trumpet part can be played on trumpet or flugelhorn), four trombones, piano, guitar, bass, drums and added percussionist. Doubles in the winds are as follows: ▪ alto 2 also plays flute, and ▪ baritone sax also plays bass clarinet.
The lead trumpet part goes up to an optional four leger-line G♯ on the last note. This tune is a solid Grade 5. Chart length is 142 written bars, tempo is ♩ = 160 and the score is 17 pages.
Our big band charts only come one way, and that is as follows:
• parts are 9″ x 12″ (folded and/or taped) printed on 80 lb. text stock
• scores are 11″ x 17″ on 24 lb. stock comb-bound with 10 ml mylar front sheet and 15-pt. black vinyl back.
