The Sleaze FactorBy Randy Brecker / arr. Mike Crotty Jazz Ensemble Conductor Score Grade: 4.5 (Medium Advanced / Difficult) Item: 00-JEM01031C
Jazz trumpeter Randy Brecker's funky Brazilian samba has been brilliantly arranged by Mike Crotty. This clever tune will stick in your mind for weeks! Randy has recorded and performed his original composition worldwide with rave reviews, and with the first play through and you'll know why -- it is a captivating melody. Mike Crotty, former arranger for the USAF Airmen of Note, has creatively scored The Sleaze Factor for experienced jazz ensembles to feature trumpet and alto saxophone with melody/solos. A nice ensemble section after the solos and the recurring measure of 5/4 will keep the band on its toes. If you desire a distinctive samba groove, then this contagious chart is exactly what you need!
