MARCHING BAND

Welcome to our new Marching Band Series of charts. This series contains stand tunes and field tunes, some of which are based on our jazz band charts located elsewhere on the website. Optional or alternate parts are available if your ensemble needs them. We will work with you to provide whatever is necessary for the success of your group.

Feel free to contact us with any requests or suggestions for new titles. If you hear something in one of our other jazz series that you think would be good for your marching group, let us know and we’ll get to work on it.

excerpt      
full version  

Another great jazz salsa chart from the Beto y los Fairlanes book. Traditional salsa meet jazz harmonies with a classical interlude – say what?! Blanca is a tour de force feature piece that showcases every section of the band. This piece would provide opportunities for some creative choreography for your dance team as well.

Sambalais - Marching Band

Grade 3      Samba      Composer:Robert Skiles/ Arr. Paul Baker & Robert Skiles      Price:$50

OUR APOLOGIES – WE DO NOT HAVE AUDIO FILES AT THE CURRENT TIME. CLICKING ON EITHER PLAYER WILL RESULT IN AN ERROR MESSAGE. WE HOPE TO HAVE THIS CORRECTED SOON.

One of the happiest tunes you’ll ever hear, great for the field or the dance team. The lively melody is followed by a montuna section that builds into a drum break and stop-time percussion showcase. Building harmonically, the piece ascends and modulates for a recap of the melody and montuna which leads to the exciting finish. Drumline instructors and arrangers are encouraged to build of the written parts to create your own Brazilian Carnival.

excerpt      
full version  

This rockin’ stand tune is adapted from the jazz salsa library of Beto y los Fairlanes and is also available for jazz band in our Salsafied Series of charts. The tubas and low brass will have the stadium groovin’ from the very first measure of the piece. Starting with the bass line and driven by the cowbell, the rest of the tune builds from there. Guaranteed to have your fans up and moving. Also ideal for Dance Teams.
