SmartMusic Category

In the SmartMusic large ensemble category, we are happy to present Gordon’s new tribute to Sammy Nestico called “My Man Sam”!  This chart was written in the style of Sammy Nestico and the ranges are reasonable for high school ensembles.  It’s a great opportunity to expose your students to both Gordon’s writing and Sammy’s style. The SmartMusic large ensembles will record “My Man Sam” and submit it to the NJF by May 15.

Participants in our SmartMusic small ensemble category will record ‘Little Phat Shuffle’ and submit the recording to the NJF by May 15.  

Upon registration to the SmartMusic Category, your ensemble will receive immediate access to SmartMusic to begin practicing and you will be mailed a copy of the selected chart immediately so you have hard copies and a score on hand before recording.

As an added bonus for participants, SmartMusic ensembles will receive full SmartMusic premium subscriptions from now until June 30, 2021!  We hope that you will enjoy exploring all that SmartMusic has to offer, and we thank SmartMusic for supporting the NJF and Jazz Education!
