"Hello! Regarding the bridge (and the tune in general), I tried to keep the chord progression pretty similar to what I saw in the lead sheet. Basically, I extracted the chords from what was written in the piano accompaniment, then played it at the…"

Andrew Herring replied to Zack Sulsky's discussion Arranging Ellington: Questions and Work in Progress in the group Jazz
"Darcy, You were very right about the intro being too busy at times. I kept the bell tones on beat two, and wrote the trumpet in a beat or half a beat later. I also kept the piano to three notes in the right hand, except for the final chord in…"

Andrew Herring commented on Darcy James Argue's blog post Arranging Ellington: The Ellington Effect
"Below you'll see (my attempt at) a transcription of the first short phrase of "Sunset and the Mockingbird." I tried to get down as much of the piano, bass, sax, and bone parts as possible. I was able to get everything except the lower…"

"Here are the links to SoundCloud, where both live and Finale-generated recordings can be found. I recommend checking them both out, if possible; The balance on the live recording isn't optimal, but it is being played by real people (important…"

"Some assorted thoughts: Darcy, what you wrote about jazz composers pre-Ellington not attempting large-scale works was familiar to me. I'm interested in composing multi-movements jazz compositions as such- what others would you recommend for…"

Andrew Herring commented on Carnegie Hall's page Arranging Ellington
"Good evening! I want to ask if anybody could offer any general advice on what to do with the piano in a ballad type tune. As a saxophonist, bassist, and vocalist, I haven't touched the keyboard much outside the occasional combo gig, which is…"

Andrew Herring commented on Darcy James Argue's blog post Arranging Ellington: The Ellington Effect
"Very insightful post! Currently, I think the most substantial challenge for me will be staying true to Duke's style, while incorporating a certain level of originality. I find that listening is a great tool, because I often find myself thinking…"

Andrew Herring commented on Carnegie Hall's group Composing

Andrew, 

Just wanted to make sure you saw that your fellow, composing group member Connor shared some of his thoughts on your piece.  Since he was kind enough to do that, maybe you could reply to his new piece.  Thanks, 

Aaron
