Eleven Miles Score & Parts (PDF) - Grade 3.5
PDFs of the score and parts to "Eleven Miles," commissioned by Ben Ruetten and the Berlin High School Jazz Ensemble in 2015.
This up-tempo straight-8th piece features a few challenging elements, including the use of seven-bar phrases and liberal use of anticipated downbeats, but is a fun and exciting modern jazz piece for a high school jazz band. There is a solo written in the second trumpet part on easy, modern sounding changes.
Difficulty Level: Grade 3.5 (Medium-Difficult High School/Easy College)
