The Next Great Journey PDF
"Next" is a multi-section tune with 3 transitions. It is a serious piece of jazz that explores different colors and grooves. It takes 3 traditional sacred tunes and puts them to uplifting jazz grooves. This is the first "program" piece of jazz music that I have written and my students "want" to play this piece. There are many hidden quotes that have significance to the programatic nature of the piece. Tunes can be used individually as stand-alone arrangements or as a piece of jazz program music. Accessible and easily produced.
