Tenor Trombone part from Jazzett No 1 (Tromb. + Piano)

11 minutes
Jazz music

Although this is a jazz piece, it is written for Classical Musicians who want a blues piece to play. There is no improvisation in it, except where the performer can freely use all types of mutes - off or on. This piece represents my trip to New York to visit a musician friend. It has also been arranged for Euphonium. Although this piece is written in the Jazz style, there is no melodic, or note improvisation. Any improvisation is done in the sordino muted sections. The player can freely improvises mutes accordingly and decides whether mute on/off and duration of sordino note. At the beginning of the piece, I have given some indication as to how the mutes should be played, but the player is free to ad lib any of these sordino passages as he sees fit. The piece has three movements. A nocturne (from the French which meant nocturnal, from Latin nocturnus) is usually a musical composition that is inspired by, or evocative of, the night.

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, 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 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.
