NEW ORLEANS FAVORITES
Bring a taste of Mardi Gras to your next concert or social event with New Orleans Favorites! This is a collection of ten classic tunes arranged for traditional ensemble in authentic New Orleans Style. Instrumentation is flexible, allowing for performance by as few as four players on Clarinet, Trumpet, Trombone and Tuba (or optional Bass). Other optional parts include Tenor Sax, Drums, a Piano/Banjo chord book and an Alto Sax book that functions as a replacement for the Tenor book.
The collection is now available in two sizes, as march-sized books (approx. 5"x 7") which will fit a standard music lyre, accommodating almost any indoor or outdoor performance venue, or in a larger, coil-bound B5 size (approx. 7"x 10") that is designed to lay flat on a standard-sized music stand.
The 7" x 10" format also features larger print making it easier to read for "more experienced" musicians.
Each arrangement is presented as two facing pages with the song on the left and written-out solos for the wind players on the right. Ranges and technical requirements are kept at a modest level to allow for success for players of a wide range of abilities.
Typical left page/right page set-up: song arrangement on the left, written-out solo on the right.
Individual books are available in either size. Orders of multiple books are also available. There is a package containing the four essential books (clarinet, trumpet/cornet, trombone and tuba). A complete, specially-priced package is also available which includes all nine books, plus a FREE score book! And now you can save even more if you purchase multiple volumes of the three sets. See the purchase page for special pricing.
Recordings of each of the ten Vol. 1 arrangements are available below for listening. Though each tune has four different solos which can be mixed and matched (and even overlapped!) these recordings present only one or two of the provided solos. Click below to listen!
