Delve into the heart of New Orleans jazz with the "Jelly Roll Blues" by the legendary Ferdinand "Jelly Roll" Morton, thoughtfully arranged for Woodwind Quintet by Francesco Leone. This arrangement, suitable for intermediate-level musicians, offers a rich tapestry of the jazz age's vibrant rhythms and melodies, adapted for a contemporary woodwind ensemble.
This eBook contains the full score and seven individual parts, including Flute, Oboe, B-flat Clarinet, French Horn in F, and Bassoon, designed for a standard woodwind quintet. To accommodate a variety of ensemble configurations, alternative parts for E-flat Horn and B-flat Bass Clarinet are provided, offering substitutions for the Bassoon and additional versatility.
Each part is meticulously notated to ensure an authentic yet accessible interpretation of Morton's pioneering jazz composition. Musicians can utilize the alternative parts to explore different color and range options, tailoring the performance to their ensemble's unique sound profile.
To enhance preparation and practice, musicians can access an audio demo on, which serves as an excellent reference for the tempo, style, and mood of this iconic piece. Whether used for performance or educational purposes, this eBook is a valuable addition to any woodwind quintet's repertoire, promising an engaging musical journey through one of jazz's most celebrated compositions.
