Jazz Ensemble Music
for Big Band
The Jazz Ensemble titles below were written for the Sam Houston State University Jazz Ensemble in the early 1980's (pre-Finale computer notation). They are in hand manuscript on 9.5 x 12 part size with either a reduced score (required by the original publisher) or a more modern full score (preference of the composer).

Live recordings of some have been posted on You Tube (unauthorized, but what the hell). Perusal scores and recordings may be requested and special ordered through Guildhian Music (see contact information below).
