The first piece from the Wynton Marsalis Big Band collection is now available for purchase and instant download.

The Caboose is the final song from the larger work called Big Train. It’s a traditional big band instrumentation of 2 Alto Sax, 2 Tenor Sax, 1 Baritone Sax, 4 Trumpets, 3 Trombones, Piano, Bass and Drums. A 3/4 groove plays throughout the piece, while melodically the piece alternates from a variety of train sounds to rich sax solis. This is the music exactly as it is recorded on the CD. The full score, written in concert pitch, is also available independent of the parts for students of arranging.

We’ll be adding more big band pieces for sale in the near future. Check back frequently for new titles.
