Just found out about this website and am already obsessed.  Can anyone recommend me some big band/jazz type musicals- something along the line of in the heights or Aladdin the musical? There are some awesome trumpet parts in both and the jazz in aladdin is genius- and i would go far as to that "prince ali" is one of the best jazz arrangements i have ever heard, and ive been playing jazz piano since 3.

(In the heights isn't really jazz, but it has that great big band feel and gives you some of that "stank face"Big band/jazz/blues musicals out there?

Any more musicals with this vibe? hopefully some modern ones- I have had chicago mentioned to me too many times lol.

If you want all jazz, all the time, with great melodies and brilliant lyrics — try City of Angels.
