Hi there!

I am trying to find sources for the above, so far with little luck. Anything for Sax/Trumpet/Trombone, or anything else would be great.

If anyone has any ideas it would be great to hear from you. Thanks;}

Kind regards
Hi Mamos!

No, I do not have such a thing, but am looking into it - prefer a book, though.
Kind regards

The good thing about Ska/Reggae - thinking of the Skatalites and Burning Spear - is that pentatonic scales seem to fit well as an improvisatory tool. At the moment I am either playing C maj pentatonic or E min pentatonic and having a whale of a time - fun to dance and play at the same time, especially in this weather.

Import and Export Standard MIDI File Format
Use the interactive Import Wizard to load an existing performance that is contained in a standard MIDI file (*.mid). The performance will automatically be converted to notation, which you can then listen to, edit, rearrange, and polish. Standard MIDI files can be exported, which can be shared with others who need *.mid file format.

Me too- the skatelites are amazing, the best 'feel' horn section I know. Try playing a skatelites number and getting that laid back, loping groove sounding authentic- very tricky indeed. Ropey tuning, bum notes galore but none of that matters, it still grooves brilliantly.
Which is how I solved the problem - my excellent Trombone teacher, who plays in Paolo Nutini's horn section amongst others! My favourite was "Riding for a Fall" by John Holt - great parts for Horn Section.

Kind regards
I've looked on numerous ocassions but have always come up short, you know with all the jazz, r&b funk stuff available out there, i find it hard to beleive theres nothing on ska, but like i said, there just i'snt or like you i simply cant find it.

Similar threads... or are they? Maybe not but they could be worth reading anyway 😀
