Program Notes

The master of jazz arranging, Sammy Nestico, pays tribute to America's most notable art form with this montage for concert band. Four distinct styles in the history of American jazz are represented with Dizzy Gillespie's Night In Tunisia, W.C. Handy's St. Louis Blues, Duke Ellington's It Don't Mean a Thing, and "Weather Report's" Birdland. Treat your players to some of the greatest music of the jazz era.
