I just found this new thread and surfed through some of your basic lessons. These should give anyone a decent point of departure to further explore the art and craft of large jazz ensemble writing.

I'll be interested in seeing how you handle some more advances concepts like contrapuntal writing, linear writing ,and denser voicings!

Good Job!

BTW: with the new Aria player, I'm FINALLY able to access the GJB sounds without thge problems I had with Kontact. If you have any pull with Gary, it sure would be nice to have a Fluegelhorn!
