Rock the Chatbox! (Jazz Version)
Christopher W. Johnson
Since the COVID-19 Pandemic began in early 2020, the composer was left wondering how to best teach in a virtual learning environment as well as make it meaningful and enjoyable. This piece became the rock anthem of celebration for all those student musicians out there that studied band online, rather than in the school band room. This chart is set in 12-bar blues and is an excellent teaching piece for syncopation and style. The cowbell part incorporates a 3:2 Latin cascara beat throughout. Alternate parts are provided for 3rd and 4th brass parts that allow for expansion to a full section from the reduced scoring. You'll want to have this fresh, new chart on your next virtual jazz concert!
