Jazz Stock Arrangements: A Resource Guide

Combo Stock Arrangements

This is a list of "stock arrangements"—published sets of parts—for jazz "combo"—small groups, usually of seven or eight instruments. Styles range from Dixieland to bop: the name of the series the stock is from often suggests the style of the stock. The most common "combo" is 3 saxes, trumpet, trombone, piano, drums, and bass.
