Description: The Dark Moon waxes and wanes very similarly to an actual lunar cycle, with cyclic figures washing in and out over melodic material throughout the piece. Extended solo space for soprano sax and guitar serves the composition as much as it features the soloists. Layers of simple melodic lines over modern harmony and sounds make this a piece any ensemble can enjoy. Great feature for a sax section that can double (alternate non-doubling parts also included). Recorded by the West Point Band's Jazz Knights on "Turning Points."

Catalog Number: MTM-65-14017
Description: "Convergence" has Bob Brookmeyer and Maria Schneider influences. It features Saxophones and Trombones on tricky melody and counter-melody lines. There are 3 main grooves through-out this chart, moving between Swing, Straight- eighth, and 12/8. It also features dense harmonies at times in the horn voicings, great for the developing college Jazz Ensemble. The solos are modal in nature, with the Soprano Sax solo being in odd meter, Trombone being in 12/8, and an open Drum solo. A challenging, but fun chart.

Catalog Number: MTM-15-14001
Description: This chart starts out with a brass chorale and slowly builds into an exciting up-tempo swing featuring time changes and a strong melody. Soprano saxophone has an extended solo over top of the form leading into a unique and intense unison sax soli featuring two sopranos. The angular sax soli eventually gives way to a rubato piano solo. The piano then leads into a funky groove that turns out to be a highlight at the end of the piece, where bass trombones are featured in a crescendo to an exciting finish.
