Our Man Dan

Mike Tomaro

More advanced groups have come to know that Mike Tomaro’s name on a piece means that the music is of the highest quality. Our Man Dan is no exception. The chart is built on a swung 8th funk groove and features wonderful ensemble writing as well as plenty of space for your soloists.

Don't Grow Up...It's a Trap

Denis DiBlasio

Denis DiBlasio’s new chart is a great vehicle for introducing odd meters to your band. The driving even eighth note groove with constant quarter notes in the rhythm section will make the 7/4 feel natural in a short amount of time. Open solos over one scale gives your soloists a perfect chance to spread their wings as well. A great change up chart for any program!
