About the Album

Sleepy Creek Samba (named for Sleepy Creek Mountain in Morgan County, West Virginia) is an example of my writing for mid-size jazz ensemble. The score is written for soloist, 5 horns, and rhythm section. Flexible instrumentation is used. This enables the music to be played by many combinations of instruments. Demo of the ensemble score was created by David Arivett.


Roger Aldridge: composer; David Arivett: score demos; Amy Leonard: violin; Jason Shapiro: alto & soprano sax; Jeff Knoettner: piano; E. Shawn Qaissaunee: guitar; Peter McCarthy: bass; Skip Rohrich: drums
