Olimar12345's Big Band Arrangements
« on: May 02, 2017, 06:00:12 AM »

Here's where I'll be posting various big band arrangements of mine that get the luxury of getting a performance. All recordings are done by the HCC Monday Night Big Band, under the direction of Woody Witt.

Tonight we had a concert that premiered three of my arrangements. The first was an arrangement of the theme from Jubilife City from Pokemon Diamond and Pearl Versions.

Not from a video game, but for Steven Universe followers, we also performed my arrangement of Love Like You:

Update: I forgot about this arrangement. I finished it back in January and the band read it, but it ultimately didn't get a second read (rip). Some of you guys here might get a kick out of it though lol:

These are both fantastic! Yes, I'm very interested in hearing the 3rd one. Also do you have scores of these available? If not, that's fine, just wondering.

By golly, jubilife city was good! Who performed it? Plus now I've heard your voice it doesn't sound like olimar's anymore :(

Thanks you guys, I appreciate it. All tunes are performed by the HCC Monday Night Big Band, under the direction of Woody Witt.

The third piece of mine that was performed is really special. Titled "Emotion Sickness," it is a big band arrangement of the opening track from the album "Ghosts" by Joe LoCascio. We were lucky enough to have Joe LoCascio come in and play on it (piano).

Brilliant stuff! :) Of course the only one I can properly appreciate is the Jubilife City haha, but I really enjoy your writing. The drum set writing is especially well done, I think that part alone can direct the entire band.

Oh, and I hear excellent horn/trombone solos in the foreground ;)

Thank you, Daj  :) Although, the chart/writing cannot be given the praise for the drum set performance. Credit must be given to our fantastic plerformers, especially in the rhythm section where typically the least amount of writing exists! xD
