Boplicity by Miles Davis. By Gil Evans. Edited by Mike Tomaro. For Jazz Ensemble (Score & Parts). Jazz Ensemble Library. Grade 4. Score and parts. Published by Hal Leonard (HL.7010770).The landmark album by Miles Davis Birth of the Cool brought us a unique instrumentation (the nonet) along with distinctive jazz sounds. Without straying from the intent of the music and working directly with the original score, Mike Tomaro's adaptation for standard instrumentation makes this wonderful classic available to the contemporary jazz ensemble. The style is laid back swing and includes solos for baritone sax, trumpet and piano (like the original).

Boplicity by Miles Davis. Edited by Jeffrey Sultanof. Arranged by Gil Evans. For nonet [6 horns with rhythm section] (Horn 1: Alto Saxophone, Horn 2: Baritone Saxophone, Horn 3: Trumpet, Horn 4: Horn in F (or Trumpet 2 or Tenor Sax), Horn 5: Trombone, Horn 6: Tuba (or Bass Trombone), Piano, Bass, Drums). Swing. Medium. Full score and set of parts. Published by Jazz Lines Publications (JL.JLP-8052).Gil Evans set up shop in his small New York apartment above a Chinese laundry acting as an adviser to a group of jazz musicians. Evans was already well-known as an adventurous arranger who took inspiration from classical composers of the day. Miles Davis was trying to separate himself from the bebop club scene, of which he was a part in Charlie Parker's groups. In 1947 Davis and Evans organized a group of musicians into a working nonet and began to rehearse some new material. The musicians that were in the group included: Miles Davis (trumpet), Mike Zwerin (trombone), Bill Barber (tuba), Junior Collins (French horn), Gerry Mulligan (baritone saxophone), Lee Konitz (alto saxophone), John Lewis (piano), Al McKibbon (bass), and Max Roach (drums). The emphasis of this group was the arrangements and the re-definition of the current jazz scene. They invented what came to be known as the 'cool school.' In 1949 Davis enlisted Gerry Mulligan, John Lewis, Gil Evans and Johnny Carisi to write 12 arrangements that were recorded by Capitol Records. Three recording sessions over the next year yielded the famous 'Birth of the Cool' record. This Gil Evans arrangement is quite possibly one of the most famous jazz arrangements of all time. And, we're pleased to present it here as-recorded, directly from the original manuscript. All solos have been transcribed, though chord changes are included in the event that your players wish to improvise instead. This is not a complicated arrangement and is within reach of most proficient bands. Solos are featured for baritone sax, trumpet, and piano. An alternate B flat part for the French horn is included that may be played by a second trumpet or a tenor sax. And, the tuba part may be played by a bass trombone. If there was ever a must-have arrangement, this is it. This Jeffrey Sultanof Master Edition comes with complete performance and historical notes. NOTE: This is part of our BIRTH OF THE COOL series of charts.
