LE BAND

LEAD SHEETS

Alain Caron is universally recognized as one of the world’s finest bassists, and Le Band is the first record he has produced as a solo artist since his extraordinary stint with Uzeb.

Le Band Lead Sheets includes all the tracks from Alain Caron’s acclaimed 1993 album Le Band and is offered for the first time on the market, in e-book format, exclusively for Beats Editions.

Lead Sheets are the most efficient form of communicating musical ideas. They are less cumbersome than full arrangements and allow greater creative freedom by providing more specific details than chords.

In Le Band Lead Sheets all themes are in standard notation.

ESSENTIAL COMPONENTS OF LE BAND LEAD SHEETS

  • Melody. Lead Sheet notation generally means single-line melody, and occasionally includes a harmony line or chord voicings.
  • Chord Symbols. The defining, characteristic component of a lead sheet is its chord symbols. A chord symbol defines the current harmonic region, as a key signature, and it stays in effect until the chord changes. Chord symbols are set above the staff, centred over the beat where the new harmonic region begins.
  • Tempo, Styles, Clef, Key and Time Signatures. These provide a basic orientation for the musician.
  • Roadmaps, Repeats, and Arrangement Directions. To keep lead sheets concise, multiple passes through a section are indicated with repeat signs, multiple ending systems, codas, segnos, and the like. Rehearsal letters or names for different sections (Intro, Verse, Chorus, etc.), are further clarified with double bar lines. Text indications such as “4X” or “Vamp Out” shed light on the form or arrangement.
  • Slash Notation. Time slashes (////) with chord symbols written above indicate solo sections. Charts exclusively for rhythm section players might feature slash notation throughout with no written melody.
  • Ensemble Notation. Critical instrumental hooks, ensemble rhythmic concepts (stop time, or kicks), and repeated licks (often for the bass) might appear in notation in temporary second staff.
