Wrap It Up— by Joe Riposo is a grade one slow swing jazz chart written to provide the beginning Jazz Ensemble with the experience of learning the harmonic structure and to develop the skill to hear and play the jazz line with forward motion. Students learn to balance the chords and learn to feel the rhythms played. This chart is a jazz experience for not only a level one band but also for levels 2 & 3 bands. Remember it is not what you play but how you play it that makes the difference.
Standard Big Band (5/4/4/4)
