Pacemaker is a fast and fun jazzy blues for big band, much in the style of Sammy Nestico & Count Basie. With a bit of practice it should be within the grasp of a decent amateur big band. Trumpet 1 has a few high-ish notes (Eb highest) but you don’t need to be Maynard Ferguson to hit them! Trombone 1, I’m told, is also quite high so you might want to check that with your principal ’bone.

Getting the ensemble rhythms and hits right will be crucial to making this piece sound good. Although the rhythm parts are generally to be improvised, the key rhythms are included in all the rhythm section parts.

I’m always happy to hear from people who are performing my music so do let me know if you’re playing this piece. Also I’d be happy to customise the score to your band’s needs - just get in touch at michael.roberts@ucl.ac.uk !
