Arrangements
This page contains recordings of some of my big band arrangements. Included with the sound recordings are excerpts from the scores. As the audio is taken from live concerts, the sound quality is not great. Soundclips will be replaced with higher quality ones in the future.
Dear Old Stockholm

This arrangement draws its inspiration from the small group recording by Phil Woods
and Gene Quill. After the alto and trombone solos, there is a saxophone soli that is a
harmonized version of Phil Woods' solo.

This is a fantastic tune by George Cables. The arrangement is inspired by
numerous solo versions that George has recorded and by a duo version he did
with saxophonist, Frank Morgan.

The Little Boy With The Sad Eyes

This is a great tune by Nat Adderley that is infrequently played. The arrangement is
inspired by this live recording by the Cannonball Adderley group. The brass soli is
a harmonized excerpt from Nat Adderley's solo and the saxes have a harmonized
version of Cannonball's solo.
