SCM-1131-00 Gr. 3 'To You' Comp by Thad Jones/Arr. Mike Carubia NEW for 2016! JW Pepper Editor's Choice
View Score  |  Right Click To Listen
This is one of Thad’s most beautiful ballads which I chose to re-score in a lower key but kept all of Thad’s lines. I notated all of the breathing spots and dynamics to help students re-create this masterpiece by Thad Jones. This is also a great teaching piece that requires control and good intonation. Optional matching SATB Vocal parts for a combined performance with the Jazz Ens.

I assigned this composition to Andy Farber because he is a master at writing for saxes. The lead melody is handled by the 1st alto, supported by tasty brass backgrounds and soli sections. This chart is a great feature for the whole band.

Thad's unforgettable composition will provide your students with a great Ballad playing experience while playing one of his most often played melody. Mike Carubia has taken the liberty of adding counter melodies, and a written Piano/ Opt Flute melody to start the 2nd chorus. "A Child Is Born" will capture the hearts of the audience and the musicians who play this soulful tune. Get really for another surprise ending on this one.
