Music Selection-Instrumental Jazz

Instrumental Jazz Ensembles may perform any music you consider suitable for adjudication. However- we recommend that you select at least one ballad and one swing type piece. Music scores for instrumental jazz ensembles are not required for the adjudicators but may be provided if desired.
