(5/4/4, Vibes/Marimba, P-B-Drs) 17 total parts + Score 
24 Jam is a fun, lively piece for Big Band. It's a vibes & marimba feature (one player plays both, or split the part among two players) with a cool Samba feel and open solo sections. After the solos is a rhytmically challenging ensemble section which builds up to a break where the melody returns DS al Coda. Lipner suggests setting up the vibes and marimba toward the front of the stage, in front of the piano/rhythm section in clear view. 2 mics per instrument will be needed since this is a mallet feature. This piece and Cabana En El Sol will showcase your mallet players, delighting the audience along the way! Great rhythm section workout in cut time @ qtr=120! Grade IV/V of VI.

                      GRADE: IV     DURATION:  5+ mins

Vibes/Marimba Feature

Cabana En El Sol for Big Band is a sunshine-filled medium tempo Cha-Cha that grooves hard. Scored as a vibes and marimba feature, these two parts can be played by one person or shared by two players. There are two solo sections. The first is in the Cha-cha feel, the second a double time Swing feel. Lipner suggests setting up the vibes and marimba toward the front of the stage, in front of the piano/rhythm section in clear view. 2 mics per instrument will be needed since this is a mallet feature. This piece and 24 Jam will showcase your mallet players, delighting the audience along the way! Grade III/IV of VI.

St. Thomas for Jazz Ensemble (comp. Sonny Rollins, arr. Chuck Tumlinson)
Vibes/Marimba Feature with Tenor Pan

digital download 

(5/5/5, Vibes/Marimba, Tenor Pan, Guitar, P-B-Drs) 22 total parts + Score 
This arrangement has 2 super cool features: 1) Steel Pan and 2) A Supersax-style scoring of Sonny Rollins’ solo  transcribed from the landmark “Saxophone Colossus” album! Your sax section will be on their toes on the whole way thru this chops-buster. It’s an exciting challenge for them to work up the entire piece with the knowledge that they’re re-creating an important part of Jazz history! The Steel Pan and mallets bring a wonderful refreshing twist to this classic. Grade V of VI.
