For my arranging module at Trinity Laban Conservatoire, I wanted to do something that I was particular interested in at the moment – and so, I chose to write in the style of Bob Brookmeyer. This turned out to be the most intense and beneficial task of the year. I chose to arrange the John Coltrane composition “Lazy Bird”
I made a 1500 words rationale to support my arranging decisions.
I will upload an audio file of the arrangement when I get hold of it.
