PDQ Music is proud to announce the publication of several new musical arrangements for various ensembles including Jazz Ensembles, Big Bands, Brass Quintets, and String Quartets. All arrangements are available at Sheet Music Plus, and feature compositions by a wide range of artists such as Thelonius Monk, Henry Mancini, Billy Joel, Coldplay, and Vince Guaraldi.

Arrangements for Jazz Ensembles and Big Bands include jazz standards, new treatments of popular songs from the 1960’s (e.g. “The Look of Love” à la Diana Krall), as well as selections from Broadway (e.g. “Thoroughly Modern Millie” and “Cabaret”). Arrangements for Chamber Groups are not limited to Bach and Pachelbel, and include ever-popular wedding requests such as “Just the Way You Are” by Billy Joel.

For the next two weeks, Sheet Music Plus is running a Chamber Music promotional in preparation for the rapidly approaching wedding season. So, if you have a Brass Quintet, Woodwind Quartet, or String Quartet that plays a lot of weddings, be sure to visit our website, our publisher’s page at Sheet Music Plus, or our YouTube channel. PDQ Music is constantly adding new material, so check back often.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
