How important is if for a band to warm up? For the brass player it helps them get through the duration of the rehearsal, and for everyone it's a chance to get their “ears” set before the complex harmonies start. But how many do? “There's not enough time in the rehearsal”.
There's time for 3-5 minutes surely! And those valuable minutes will most likely help make the rest of the rehearsal more efficient.
“Big Band Warm-Up Scales” is a book of nine scale patterns for this purpose. They're graded for different levels, written in unison so bands of any size can make use of them, and there's nicely harmonised chord changes to go with them to keep the rhythm section interested. Players at any level can benefit from this great resource!
