“Center of Gravity” for Big Band – Score and Parts

“Center of Gravity” is an original composition of mine. I was inspired by my studies of airplanes and aviation, so I wrote a big band chart about it. It harmonically dense, very rhythmic, and pretty brisk. This is a challenging, but fun, chart.

 

Instrumentation: 17-Piece Big Band — 5 Saxophones (1 Soprano Sax, 1 Alto Sax, 2 Tenor Saxes, 1 Baritone Sax), 4 Trumpets, 4 Trombones, Rhythm Section (Piano, Upright Bass, Drums, Guitar)
