The Waltz has an interesting history, and by the time the 19th century came around, the word primarily indicated that the dance was a turning one; one would “waltz” in the polka to indicate rotating rather than going straight forward without turning. The led to the composition of music like these waltzes here, which change chords at the start of each 3/4 measure and have a fluid, languid quality to help the slide step of the dancers. If you play in a dance band for weddings and large formal gatherings, this collection is going to be very important for your collection.
This collection includes one book with parts for Bb, C, Eb instruments, and Bass Clef for Tuba and/or Trombone as well (including piano accompaniment in the concert pitch book). These include chords and melodies to add other accompaniment instruments like guitar, and lead parts with counter melodies in each of the listed keys. With this extremely flexible layout, you can create a combo as small as trumpet and piano, to as big as a full band with trumpets, clarinets, saxophones, trombones, and a full rhythm section.
