Chanukah Joy: variations on Ma'oz Tzur

Regular price $57.00
Jazz Ensemble | Medium-Advanced | Item BB4026

    This joyous jazz waltz is one of the very few big band Chanukah arrangements. It's a set of swinging variations on Ma'oz Tzur (Rock of Ages). 

    Almost every player gets a short written solo, and your tenor and trombone soloists will get to stretch out.  You may hear echoes of Bob Mintzer, an important mentor to arranger Rick Hirsch.
