This Santana hit has endured through the years and been recorded countless times. Here it is like you've never heard it before in the masterful hands of Michael Mossman! Arranged for David Sanborn, it has substantial solo space for alto sax, but other soloists include trombone, trumpet and guitar. The opening features a laid back cha-cha feel with colorful scoring (flute is optional) before developing into a real powerhouse for the rest of the chart. Recorded by Grover Washington Jr. with Bill Withers, this tune helped define the “smooth” jazz sound. Silky smooth and well orchestrated, this is a nice addition to any concert program. Originally recorded by jazz fusion masters The Rippingtons, this chart for jazz ensemble features a great “Birdland-like” groove and Gordon Goodwin's creativity and total command of the big band idiom. The sax section is featured along with solo space for alto. Originally published in 1992, here's a chart that will never sound old.

Slappin', poppin' funk recorded by jazz fusion saxophonist David Sanborn! Mark Taylor has done a great job of capturing this distinctive sound in this churning chart. This monster arrangement is the authentic version as recorded by Bill Watrous and his “Manhattan Wildlife Refuge” in the mid '70s. The signature lines and blazing tempo of Chick Corea's classic are transformed into a roaring chart for big band by master arranger John La Barbera. (Alto 1 doubles Flute, and Alto 2 doubles Soprano Sax) John La Barbera has taken his well-known version of Chick Corea's Spain and done a great job of adapting it for the small band format. Certainly an exciting offering for mature players in an arrangement for six horns plus rhythm. (Grade 4)
