Alexander's Ragtime Band
Irving Berlin, Arranged by Jerry Nowak

I'm Always Chasing Rainbows
One of Irving Berlin's most popular songs is given the big band treatment by Jerry Nowak. It starts out with an up tempo swing, dense with harmony, and leads to a jazz ballad in the middle of the piece. This is then followed by a swing roll-off and a catchy Dixieland treatment of the tune by a brass quintet. It finishes up with the full band swingin’ at the end. Great for pops concerts and for community bands.

Setting Sail (Freedom of the Spirit)
Carl Strommen

Setting Sail
With its title is taken from the text of Walt Whitman’s poem “Leaves of Grass,” Setting Sail is an epic new piece that is expansive and sophisticated. Its luxuriant, reticent opening moves into beautiful lyrical lines and all-encompassing harmonies before leading into the journey at sea, punctuated with a cool 6/8 groove. To finish, we have a climactic return of the original lyrical material. This is a large-scale work of dramatic proportions.
