Great Arrangement

My brass quintet sight read through Birdland this week and I was very impressed. It’s a great arrangement and just what we need for our concert theme! Thanks so much.😊

Birdland Quintet Version

Great ... close to the original and something for everyone in the group! Glad you kept the bass line interesting!!

Tune good, spacing bad

The tune is well arranged, but the spacing when it is printed is pretty bad. The trombone part ends up with the last two measures on a separate sheet when there is plenty of room on the previous page. Also, if you print out the score, it does four measures per page. I know I can change all kinds of settings on my printer to make it better, but I should not have to do that. I don't have to when printing from other sheet music sites.

Great arrangement

This arrangement touches the soul of the original pieces of weather-report!!

Birdland for Brass Quintet- an instrumental composition by Joe Zawinul in 1977 for his band Weather Report on the album Heavy Weather.

Brass Quintet plus Drumset arrangement by Brian Bindner.

The arrangement can easily be played without drumset.

The sound sample is played by "Semper Quintus" - original recording of this arrangement.
