Teaching the World to Play


Ryan Fraley
Grade 3

Here is a beautiful trombone solo feature for jazz ensemble with optional string orchestra. The string parts can easily be replaced or augmented with the included synthesizer part, or the work can be performed with standard big band instrumentation only. Your developing trombone soloist is supported through a series of different scenes with lush, graceful orchestration and an ever-descending harmonic progression. A transcription of the improvised portion of the solo on the recording is provided. An optional marimba part adds depth, color and motion. The top trumpet/flugel note is F-sharp. This is a subtle and mature work for jazz orchestra.
