Descrizione prodotto


Composer/arranger/bass trombonist John Morton has more than 45 years of experience writing music in a variety of styles. During this time he has composed and arranged for radio orchestras, big bands, brass bands, theatre productions and smaller instrumental groups. His nine-piece jazz group was a favourite with 'off-duty' professionals, performing in concert and in jazz clubs nationwide. For many years he has been actively involved in the brass band world playing bass trombone, baritone horn and euphonium. His musical experience has embraced an unusually wide range of styles and even includes touring with a soul band on trumpet and flügelhorn (and backing vocals!). His compositions are sold world-wide.

4.0 su 5 stelle A valuable addition to any collection of composition books 19 marzo 2013
Di Joseph - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile
John Morton's the composer/arranger (Volume 1) is one of several texts on jazz composition and arranging that have appeared in recent years. Having just read Richard Sussman and Michael Abene's Jazz Composition and Arranging in the Digital Age, it was with great interest that I picked up John Morton's volume.

Morton's book has understandably been used by prestigious colleges and universities around the world. Clearly informed by 45 years of practical experience, Morton's book is comprehensive overview of the technical and practical issues behind composition and arranging.

The volume is divided into 10 books: (1) Form and rhythm, (2) Melody, (3 & 4), Common-Practice and Jazz Harmony, (5, 6 & 7) Instrumentation and Orchestration, (8) Counterpoint, (9) Composition, and (10) Notation. Book nine synthesizes the first eight books and then smartly provides a clearly explicated example of how those principles are practically applied in a real score. Book ten functions more as an appendix. Though it lacks an index, the book has a strong table of contents. The writing is conversational and inviting, though it would have been benefitted by some occasional editorial trimming and clarifying.

Although Morton uses a fairly typical pedagogical arrangement, reading his book feels more like exploring a tool box than following a text book. Morton does not give pedagogical exercises along the way nor does the text direct how the concepts it presents should be used. In this, he lives up to the dictum presented in the introduction that "We should never say `that is forbidden' but rather, `of you do this, that will happen'" (3). Morton accordingly fills his volume with fascinating insights into music theory and shows how these materials could be used. The book is also peppered with philosophical asides (reminiscent of Schoenberg's Theory of Harmony: 100th Anniversary Edition) that remind the reader that music isn't just a functional craft but a humanizing endeavor. In sum, as long as you approach it as a tool box and not as a novel, you won't be disappointed.

The book will greatly please readers who are self-directed and are seeking specific input from an expert voice. It will also work well for those who have a teacher to guide them through it. Because the book requires that readers bring their engagement to the table, I would not recommend it for readers who don't know where to start or who are timid about getting their hands dirty. Though such readers would be better served by Sussman and Abene's book, I prefer Morton's overall.
4.0 su 5 stelle A Strong Resource for the Composer 20 marzo 2013
Di DK - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile
I am a composer of classical, world, and experimental music. While having composed music for many years, as well as being well-educated in many styles of music, I found the Composer/Arranger to be a wonderful resource. The author explores the multifaceted nature of music composition, including theory, writing techniques, orchestration, multiple styles (both western classical and jazz are represented here)and countless other components to writing music. The experienced composer may find certain sections to be review, but the truth is that even the most prolific composer could be introduced to new approaches of writing. I highly recommend this resource for anyone serious about their composing career.
5.0 su 5 stelle This book is packed with great information! 17 giugno 2013

The Composer/Arranger was a nice surprise! The book holds all the information that multiple books I used during my music school days had - theory, counterpoint, composition, and orchestration, but without the dryness. The author clearly has a lot of knowledge and experience, and his understanding of how music works and how instruments sound best make this book valuable to any composer. I love this book!
