Emancipation Blues Composed by Oliver Nelson. Arranged by Roger Holmes. For Jazz Ensemble. Published by Hal Leonard Publishing Corp. (Catalog # 07010324, UPC: 073999069525)

Oliver Nelson's well-known jazz standard is now available in a more playable version for younger bands. Roger's adaptation opens with the original gospel style chorale then launches into a medium blues shuffle. A duet of Alto and Trumpet is featured on the head and the ensemble figures are as effective as on the original. Required literature for every jazz program!
