Nothing quite captures the experience of listening to jazz. There is something unique and alive about the interaction of the players, the spontaneous improvisation, and the varied styles. Our aims are to give musicians the tools to play jazz and big band music, to provide information about jazz and big band music to as many people as possible, and to promote and encourage jazz and big band music everywhere. Garritan Jazz & Big Band is the first library of its kind. We wanted to do something special and produce a new kind of library. Jazz instruments are very expressive, individualistic and the most difficult to accurately sample. New computing and sampling technology now makes this possible. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the individuals who contributed to this project and made it possible to provide these sounds and tools for musicians. I would particularly like to thank Tom Hopkins who has recorded, performed and programmed much of this library. Tom brings over thirty five years of professional jazz experience and this product certainly demonstrates Tom’s mastery and musicality. Garritan Jazz and Big Band is a dynamic library that will evolve and grow. Please check our website at www.garritan.com for the latest up-to-date information downloads, updates, FAQs, troubleshooting, helpful hints and tutorials. It is my hope that this Jazz and Big Band collection will enable you to make great music that enriches your life.
