ORCHESTRA MUSIC:

I have written three String Orchestra jazz pieces that are published by FJH Music Company. Below is the description from their catalogue and a score sample. Go the the video page to see students perform the Swing on a String including improvised solos.

Full length recordings of all three pieces below are available on the FJH website.

Swing There, Done That (2005):

Jazz composer and violinist Martin Norgaard offers this exciting new swing composition for your orchestra. Celli and basses get a chance to shine on the melody at the beginning of the piece. Solo sheets are provided for every instrument and you are free to “open this one up” to encourage improvisation. Optional drum set is included to help with the style and mood. A great change of pace for your next program, and an ideal way to incorporate the National Standards into a musical setting!
