Welcome to the Mintzer Big Band App. This is, by far, the most ambitious app production and undertaking ever for us here at Fuzzy Music Mobile. But we know that the hard work and expense is worth it, because this app does more to bring the big band experience to everyone anywhere than any other product.. How?

While most “play-along” products allow for the user to “music-minus” two or three tracks, this app allows the user to minus (or solo) ..

1st (Lead) Trumpet
2nd Trumpet
1st Trombone
Bass Trombone
Lead Alto
Lead Tenor
Baritone Sax
Guitar (2 tunes)
Percussion (4 tunes)
Instrument Solos

in any combination, plus the ability to record yourself or multiple play-along partners and then save/ send that mix to your instructor, colleagues or friends. Your iPhone or iPad built-in mic can do the job, but a 3rd-party microphone (from such companies as Zoom, Shure, or Apogee) might give you the best-sounding results. Each chart/part can be printed or emailed from the app.

The are 10 tunes total in the Mintzer Big Band App library and store. Our hope is that you’ll dig the experience and the music so much that you’ll want to play along with all of this great music, played so well by so many great musicians.

Really useful, brilliant

A truly fantastic practice and learning tool. I’m a professional, working drummer, but always searching for ways to expand and improve my knowledge and skill sets. This app is truly a self-education and musical gold mine. If you want to dig into brilliant jazz charts and be inspired by some really great musicianship along the way, make a small investment to purchase this app and all of the accompanying charts on your instrument. You won’t be sorry.

The Mixing Board feature is absolutely brilliant—i’m finding all kinds of ways to use it: muting some instruments while bringing up the levels on others. How about a rhythm section workout? Mute all of the horns and reeds, and work out with bass and piano and percussion exclusively… The sky is truly the limit.

Fantastic Educational and Fun App!

What a great app and to be able to experience playing with the Bob Mintzer Big Band like you're right there with them! Even just listening to different tracks soloed is a learning experience to hear how the individual players play their parts. I love the features to print parts, email tracks, and so forth. Great job with this! Can't wait for more artists to jump on the "band" wagon and more charts! (Yellowjackets tracks?!!)

Great App, but read carefully for all charges.

I guess I didn’t read closely enough. I thought I was getting all songs for $9.99, but you only get two. The in app purchase is then $19.99 for the rest of the tunes.
