There is some news (finally...)! I will be debuting a new version of Mind For Music soon and because of this I will be shutting down this blog for good. This will probably be in the next month or so but I will post here with another update soon.

Thanks and take care!

-Steve from Mind For Music


Happy Remembrance Day!

I know it may seem as if not much has been happening around here, but I can assure you all that is not the case! I am currently working on a new version of Mind For Music, one aimed at better organization and giving some more powers to contributors.

I do apologize if you have submitted anything to the site and haven't seen it posted yet, I am working on getting all new submissions on the NEW site, so rest assured you will see them up there shortly! Thanks for the patience and I should only be another couple weeks if everything goes as planned!

Thanks again to everyone who has contributed and submitted to the site, I look forward to sharing the new and improved version with all of you!



Added another great chart from Claudio Prado today, this time it's Max Roach's "Man From South Africa" off his 1961 album Percussion Bitter Sweet.

Also,  I've added a great Big Band chart from the 30's, "A Sailboat In The Moonlight" by Carmen Lombardo and John Jacob Loeb.

More stuff coming soon!



Happy New Year!

I have been working hard on getting all the great submissions I have received up onto MindForMusic.com, thanks so much to everyone who contributed and thanks again for your patience.

I have been doing so many custom transcriptions and contract work arranging that I am scrambling for time to keep the site updated. However,  I am currently working a new version of the website that will make it a lot easier for me to keep on top of things, more news on that in a little while...

In the meantime I have finally gotten around to uploading some new things, firstly check out this great new original composition from Italian Saxophonist Raffaele Mirabelli. This is his tune "Dostage" and you can find a link to the sheet music here! I have added a bit of information about Raffaele to the original composition page, and make sure to check out his website. Thanks Raffaelle for the great original piece!

Also, I have added a great arrangement of David Pomeranz's "Got To Believe In Magic" from the 1982 Film Zapped!, this is a great transcription and thank you to Samantha Marie R. Enderes for the very fine work!

That's all for now but there will be A LOT of new things in the next few weeks so stay tuned!



If you have submitting anything to Mind For Music the past few months I want to thank you and let you know that I am working on getting everything up as soon as I can! I've actually been swamped with so many submissions and I am pretty far behind getting everything working. I am also working on some cool new additions to the site which is contributing to my behind-ness.

I am aiming to have everything up before the holidays, thank you again for your patience and have a great holiday season!

More updates to come soon,



Added a great chart of Oliver Nelson's "Six And Four" off of his 1961 album "Straight Ahead". Thanks to Claudio Prado for that addition!



So there are some pretty cool things happening over at M4M these days, should have a new and improved version of the site up at some point in the (hopefully) near future. In the meantime I have added a few new cool things:

Thanks once more to J.A. Hefner for another great chart, this time it's a Nick Lane arrangement of "Admiral's Horn".

I also added a new original composer, Vince Corozine, who was kind enough to share some of his work with us. Check him out over at the Original Compositions page.

There is a lot more stuff coming, I am so very behind these days!


Thank you to Dana Wright for submitting Melvin Sparks' "Watch Yo' Step" off his fabulous 2005 album "This Is It". If you haven't heard that album I highly suggest you do, it's killer!


Thanks to the anonymous individual who upload a great new chart of Henry Mancini's "Pink Panther Theme" (in the BigBand section). I have a ton of other great charts to get up in the next little while as well, so thanks for your patience if you submitted something!

Just a reminder if you did submit something and don't see your name attached to it, contact me! There could have been some issues with the serve ron my end, apologies if this is the case.



Added a TON of new practice videos to the M4M YouTube page. A bunch of different blues progressions in every key with isolated bass, drums and piano to practice with.

Check them out and remember to subscribe to the channel as I will be adding a lot more stuff in the next few weeks.
