ARRANGEMENTS


Ben’s arrangement of the tune ‘Is You Is Or Is You Ain’t My Baby’ was performed in 2017 by the Admirals Own Big Band live at a monthly ‘Soundwaves’ Concert at the Royal Australian Navy’s HMAS Cerberus.

This is an example of Ben’s ability to arrange music for a larger ensemble. Ben is also performing in the trumpet section of this performance. This rendition features Maikee on vocals and Matthew Tubman on Lead Trumpet.
