The Fraize Book volumes 1 & 2 are together a collection of over 100 original jazz compositions written between the mid 1980s and the present. They are arranged for various small group settings, trio to sextet. A variety of styles and instrumentation are represented: straight-ahead, latin, jazz-rock/fusion, "chordless" trio and quintet, organ quartet, and some that incorporate elements of free-jazz and the avant-garde.

Volume 1 will soon be available in  paper and pdf versions in its entirety. I will also be offering "booklets" by instumentation and/or style, and individual arrangements. The Fraize Book will be available for multiple instruments/transpositions: Master Lead Sheets/Scores, guitar, piano, bass, drums, Bb tenor sax/clarinets, Eb alto/bari sax, Bb trumpet (in the right octave!), trombone/bass clef, and C lead sheets. Arrangements purchased individually will include all of the above parts. Additionally, each arrangement will include a reference MIDI sequence mp3 of a full "performance" of the tune (all intros, melody, solo sections, endings, etc.) which can also serve as a kind of "poor man's" play-along.

On this page I am offering a free lead sheet to the tune "Young One" from the  Organic Matter album. In the sidebar you can listen to the recorded version and the MIDI sequence.
