Kim Sanders' music : a collection of original compositions by this unique musician / Kim Sanders ; collated by Linda Dawson and Mara Kiek.
Australian Artists Analysed in this Book
Music scores written by Kim Sanders (1948-2013). This book is a collection of his life’s work as a composer, writing for his own world/jazz ensembles (chiefly Brassov and Kim Sanders & Friends), and the scores reflect a variety of arrangement models from lead sheets to 6-part band arrangements. It contains most of Kim’s compositions – 39 tunes, some full scores, some simple lead sheets, including “Kong’s Dream” and “Istanbul Bluesu”. All are waiting to be played by musicians who want to have fun with bent grooves and the occasional quarter tone. Kim explored rhythms and scales of music from many lands and incorporated them into his compositions.
We (Linda Dawson, Mara Kiek and Llew Kiek) feel that the book has potential as an educational resource for senior high school students and tertiary music students studying world music and jazz fusion, but it is primarily intended as a general resource for any musicians interested in sourcing contemporary Australian world/jazz repertoire for a range of ensembles, from large band formats to small ensembles.
