So I've been playing lead tenor recently for a local big band, and it's inspired me to try my hand at arranging; it's something I looked at in college but never finished anything.

Anyway, I posted an arrangement of No Me Esqueça in the monthly thread (cheat cause it's not original....), and here's an arrangement of Everlong by the Foo Fighters, for vocalist. Apologies about the terrible vocal sound, need to get a real singer.... the horns aren't so shabby for samples these days mind.

Score and mp3 here (haven't sorted the parts yet, if you want them, drop me a line); recently updated to get the proper articulations in on the repeated sections, which was a bug in Dorico til now.

Everlong - Mp3
Everlong - Score


Would love feedback on the voicing and parts of the arrangement, whether it flows etc.

Wow, really kind words! Thank you and really glad you enjoyed it. Fortunately we do have a singer, I just need to make sure they're comfortable with the key....

Yeah will do if we can get set up. And yeah having an actual band to play stuff is hugely inspiring, especially given we have some great soloists!

Hence the big trombone solo on this one:

Waltz For Debby (Bill Evans)

Need to sort the score for this one out yet, but got the mp3 down; probably need to add an intro section yet though.

Any thoughts very welcome! Roughly based on the Sonny Rollins recording on The Bridge.

Without A Song - mp3
Without A Song - Score

At the risk of talking to myself, here's one just finished; Norwegian Wood by the Beatles by in 4 and sort of a shuffle. The score needs the rhythm section formatting.

Norwegian Wood - mp3

Norwegian Wood - score
