I have a new tune just about ready for publication. It should be finished by the end of the week. It’s called “El Agaciado Gatito,” or “The Graceful Kitten.” It’s a grade 2 latin big band chart that’s playable with three saxes, two trumpets, two trombones (or one trombone and an additional tenor sax) and three rhythm. It’s sort of reminicent of Doug Beach’s “Chili Pepper” series of easy latin tunes. This one should be good for middle schools as well as high schools and uses limited brass ranges. Anyone can solo and only an F minor scale is required!
Like all the big band tunes, this one is just $ 20 as a pdf download of score, notes on how to teach it and parts. I’ll put up a quick notice when it’s in the catalog on the web site.
And isn’t this a great image? You can get it from artist Robin Wood.
