Score, parts and demo CD

"Each Pak has six charts from a variety of musical sources, from jazz standards through classic pop songs, funk standards, and songs from films. Each part is fully annotated with suggested solos where players may not be experienced in soloing, plus chord symbols for the more experienced student. A full score is supplied for the teacher/conductor. "

"These Jazz Paks have become deservedly famous over the past decade for their muso-friendly approach and high-class arrangements for bands ranging from student groups to fully professional outfits. - David Etheridge, Performing Musician, January 2008
