Presenting at the OMEA conference in Niagara Falls this past week, I realized how great the need is for flex arrangements. School teachers rarely have full big bands so they need charts that can accommodate unique instrumentations. Luckily, I have written for booking agencies that want redundancy in their charts so that the arrangement can be played for 5 horn ensembles through to big bands. It is just cost efficient to hire someone to write a chart that fits all ensembles. I just have to let people know that my writing allows for such diversity. And, hey, the above chart, All Blues, is free. You really can not lose.
