Came across this thread and am looking for something similar--mainly pop arranging, the kind you might hear on Dancing with the Stars or American Idol. I've been through Rimsky-Korsakov also have used Dick Groove's "Arranging Concepts Complete" as a reference for years. I read Sebesky's book recently, but it's only Jazz harmonies. I'm looking mainly for pop harmonies. Is Mancini's book pop oriented?Mancini's is excellent. As I remember it, it is pretty Mancini-studio oriented.
