Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:

seView

seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.

Scorch

Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.

Static preview

The static preview shows a basic image of the first page.

Interactive preview

The interactive preview also shows a preview of the first page, but it's a bit slower to load. The preview is displayed using the Sibelius Cloud Publishing technology from Avid. With most scores, this technology will provide a higher quality preview, as well as being able to switch to full screen mode and also play the displayed music to you.

Printing after purchase

After you have purchased this item the Cloud Publishing technology is utilised to provide the printing mechanism for the music. As such, we recommend checking that the Interactive Preview displays correctly on your device before committing to a purchase.

(N.B. Please see 'instrumental parts' for leadsheets)

A lively piece written for my friend Ryan, who just can’t get enough of Latin music. The piece is in leadsheet form, with a "score" included to give people an overview. It’s an easy piece which would be suitable for those who are newer to jazz/Latin music, although I’m sure it would be lots of fun for skilled performers as well. The recording is a very simplistic ’head-solo-head’ arrangement, but this is for demonstration purposes only and I’d really encourage performers to think about what interesting things they could do with the chart!

It’s designed for 2 or more lead instruments, with a riff for one (preferably an alto-pitched instrument) and the main tune for the rest. At section B, all the instruments join forces to play in unison before splitting back to their parts for the final section. The piece could also work with just one horn with the piano playing the backing riff, or the riff can be done away with entirely.

I have tried to make the leadsheet informative but have removed clutter - I did originally have the horn 1 riff running throughout, but it was far too difficult to read both riff and melody together. The parts available are in Eb, Bb, C treble and C bass.

As always, please get in touch with any comments, questions or requests - michael.roberts@ucl.ac.uk - hope you enjoy the piece!
