“Modern Jazz Guitar Ensemble” Vol. 1 is a collection of four original compositions arranged for five guitars, bass, and drums. The arrangements range in style from swing, rock, 3/4, and straight eighth. The arrangements feature chromatic melodies and modern chord voicings that create a contemporary new sound for the jazz guitar ensemble. Each chart provides many opportunities for all the players in the ensemble to solo. The arrangements in this book are ideally suited for the intermediate/advanced level guitar ensemble.

“Nick Fryer has assembled a fine collection of modern jazz guitar ensemble charts for college level guitarists. The pieces are well written and offer a wide range of different styles and musical textures. I highly recommend these charts for your guitar ensemble!”

Pete McCann – professor of guitar at New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music and City University of NY.

“Nick has assembled a thoughtful and creative book of arrangements for guitar ensemble. There is a range of styles covered, which adds to the depth of this book. Beautifully constructed arrangements while leaving plenty of room for improvisation. I strongly recommend the “Modern Jazz Guitar Ensemble” Vol. 1 for anyone exploring the possibilities of the guitar ensemble.”
