New Music for Jazz Band From Eddie Carr
An exciting new piece
for big band by Eddie Carr. "Swing State" is a challenging work for an
advanced ensemble. The drummer gets a lot of play, with brushes at the
beginning and lots of soloistic sections throughout. A ballad section
in the middle features a long and flowing trumpet solo. Large amounts
of swinging counterpoint dominate the final section of the piece.

Mid-Sized Band concept, this tune is available in a 4/3/3 winds version

are so central
to good big band writing: a sax soli, counterpoint between the reeds
and the brass, multiple soloists with background figures, an acapella
tutti section, a little bit of a backbeat, and a shout chorus.
