Written with the younger band in mind, this fun, easy-to-play chart can be performed as written or used as a tool to reinforce ear training and improvising. There is ample solo space for alto saxophone, trumpet, and guitar and can be played with a swing or hip hop feel. The reasonable brass ranges and flexibility of this chart make it a must have for the younger band! (5-4-4-4)

Due to Covid-19 The Bob Curnow Big Band was not able to record this piece live. What you will hear is a Finale midi playback. We ask your understanding and look forward to being able to provide a recording of the great Curnow Big Band in the near future

Hear The Music! See The Music!

This chart was commissioned for the Fred Sturm Jazz Celebration Weekend and is one of Patty’s best charts yet. Patty Darling’s writing career has skyrocketed because of her ability to write relevant, interesting contemporary music, especially for younger players. This piece is based on a terrific Hip Hop / Swing groove that you won’t be able to get out of your head. It’s a guarantee that your band will love this new piece by Patty. Solos are indicated for trumpet and guitar (or piano). You’ll hear echoes of Patty’s chart on the

Radiohead classic “Idioteque” without all the demands of that chart. Moderate ranges for all makes this a very accessible chart for most bands. 5-5-4-5 (opt. vibes) $50.00
This is an easy, medium-rock chart, accessible by any middle school band.

 This wonderful original composition by Patty Darling adds another great chart to Sierra's Easy To Play series.  Extensions is a funky, hip-hop fusion chart with nice mood changes throughout. Sierra Music is pleased to present yet another wonderful, contemporary composition by Patty Darling. She has provided us with many publications ranging from our “Easy-to-Play” series to the “Radiohead Jazz Project”. This new piece from Patty is a slow swing in 3/4 with elements of sparsity and transcendence throughout along with an abundance of solo space for flugelhorn that really intensifies this sentiment. “Gratitude” is the perfect contrasting piece for your program to add that element of variety every band and audience needs. (5-4-4-4)

Patty Darling takes us on a Latin Rock pilgrimage in 3/4 time with the occasional 4/4 and 5/4 meters in this exciting new composition that was commissioned by Lawrence University for the Fred Sturm Jazz Celebration Weekend.

Patty Darling brings us yet another great contemporary chart: “Twists
and Turns!” Imagine yourself on a road trip with smooth stretches and beautiful
scenery, interrupted by occasional sharp turns and peaceful lookouts. This
chart incorporates multiple solo opportunities and leans heavily on the pianist
(or pianists – a second keyboard player can double many sections with electric
piano). Add in some auxiliary percussion, have fun, and enjoy the drive! 5-4-4-4

 This great piece could easily be a theme song for the next "cops and robbers" TV show! A wonderful, contemporary fusion piece in 3/4, Patty Darling's composition focuses a fair amount on the piano.
Vortex (Endless Winter) - Patty Darling
   Vortex is "...the freshest, most innovative, hippest, intelligent, and artistic writing for large jazz ensemble that I’ve witnessed in years" - Fred Sturm. Patty has once again created a highly original composition that explores the wonderful sonorities of the big band.
