New song I've been working on, thinking of showing it to my jazz combo at school but was looking for some feedback first. My main problem is A) time jumps B) awkward amount of measures. This aside the melody flows exactly the way I want it to and i think the song itself flows pretty nicely. I haven't taken any courses in harmony or anything and for the most part my harmony was in fifths down an octave (or fourths i suppose).

Anyways, it's pretty jazzy but i think it would be a fun tune to blow over just because of the demand with the time signature.

I used to play in a jazz combo at school too and I thought this was pretty good =)

Although, you might wanna change up the melody in the trumpet and alto sax a bit, as they usually don't just blare out long notes like that. Perhaps add more runs in their melodies?
