Great information and a cool look into how Sebesky likes to orchestrate. It goes beyond just big band into more diverse ensembles. Not much here in terms of basic arranging artanger it isn’t the best choice for beginners not what the book is about. This is one of the best books if you are interested in music writing and orchestration.

Don spent his life thinking and talking music and arranging. Reading this book is like spending a few evenings talking to him.

My son who is a Graduate Student in jazz at a top university loves this book. He somehow “lost” — probably someone borrowed — his original copy of this book and he needed it for reference so we bought a 2nd copy. This is a great book if you are a serious student Of arranging and orchestration A must have for professionals only.

It is full from beginning to end not only with all the standard info about instrument ranges, which instruments sound best in which voicings, etc. Things like “All professional trumpet players carry with them a straight mute, cup mute, harmon mute, felt hat, and sometimes a plunger.

Any other special mutes must be requested in advance of a performance or recording session” page Also tips on how best to record particular instruments in the studio, and things to look out for in this regard.

The listing on pages viii and ix accurately reflect the listing on the CD and the appropriate text in the book that matches each example. The examples of various sounds possible on the stringed instruments and the French horn, are particularly helpful in matching up the standard musical terms “detache,” “parlando,” etc. Overall, an excellent book both for beginners and folks with some background who are looking to expand into jazz-style sounds.

This book is incredible! I read it when it was first written early 80’s and still refer to it it’s not only great for subjective opinions, but also reference material. The records or is it a cd now that came with it were also instrumental no pun intended in giving me a great aural example of the types of sounds that I was looking for.

The Contemporary Arranger: CD

For example, he’ll take an instrument like contemporaru french horn, and audibly illustrate all the different effects for it. Then there were examples of flute with oboe flute on top in different ranges. Then they’d be reversed, such as oboe over flute in different ranges, and other helpful examples such as a ton of string effects and how to write them.


I’d thouroughly recommend the book! What I was always looking for. This book is a crisp and clear breakdown of all the important musical instruments. It is done so clearly that quick reference is possible and most every question is answered. See all 8 reviews.
