« on: May 18, 2022, 09:57:51 AM »
AUTHENTIC SHEET MUSIC ó Fifty-six years after the car accident that changed his life forever, Jan Berryís original music scores and charts from the 1960s still existóthe actual documents used by the Wrecking Crew to record the original songs. These fascinating manuscripts open an important window on Janís body of work for Jan & Dean and other artists.

In association with Janís estate, author Mark A. Moore has begun to transcribe and publish some of Janís best arrangements, to shed more light on him as a songwriter and arranger, and to invite further study of the music.

These transcribed scores will interest musicians, music educators, school ensembles, bands, and any musician/aficionado of the West Coast Sound and the Hollywood studio system of the 1960s.

First up is the classic ďDead Manís CurveĒ . . . and more will soon follow:
