Welcome to Tom Davis Music Publications where directors and students are able to stand beside the composer as 10 new works are prepared for your Jazz Ensemble. On this site you will have exclusive access to composer and performer rehearsal tips direct from the studio – on the day that these new works were recorded!
Gain access to a robust arsenal of multimedia support including downloadable solo transcriptions, streaming audio and video interviews of session musicians, mp3s of improvised solos, composer tips and conductor rehearsal suggestions.
In addition, each chart in the New Works for Jazz Ensemble 2006 ‘Score and Parts’ series includes a full length overhead video of the drummer’s in-studio session performance. This exciting new ‘Overhead Drum-Cam’ has proven to be an invaluable teaching tool for student set drummers and directors looking for ways to enhance the role of the drummer in the big band setting.
Access all of this material and more by purchasing one of the Score and Parts Participant Offers on this site. Listen to each chart on my Publications page and see which fit your programming needs for this school year.
In the coming months, I will be posting two previously published charts for Jazz Ensemble – FREE – for participants in the New Works 2006 project. ‘On Two Horizons’ (previously published by Kendor Music) and the uncut / unedited version of ‘Bill Bailey’ – previously recorded on the Eastman Jazz Ensemble ‘Hot House Flowers’ CD.
Join the mailing list to receive more information, updates and educational materials as this new series of charts makes its way into the big band repertoire.
In addition, feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to receive a free demo CD or to ask any questions about ordering these new charts.
