For all musicians
Sammy Nestico's charts have been played by more high school, college, and professional big bands than anyone else’s! And, as you will discover, they work just as well as combo tunes (think of how many Duke Ellington big band charts became combo standards)! Here is your chance to become intimately familiar with Sammy’s best music. The accompaniment trio swings like no other and is pure joy to play with. In a Big Band context, band directors can use many of the tracks as rehearsal tools and students can "woodshed" isolated parts as well as their solos.
