Bandleader/composer Darcy James Argue’s latest album, 2013’s Brooklyn Babylon, was an impressive album, melding his ornate sense of big band songwriting with narrative elements to bring the work of Danijel Zezelj to life. Now, Argue has gussied up the sheet music so it actually looks presentable and has made all 277 pages of the score available for free at the sheet music section of the Secret Society website. Getting the chance to plumb the depths of this work is a pretty cool move, especially when Argue took the time to edit all this music for us. That’s definitely worth a tax-deductable donation. Just saying. Check out the album’s score and more at DJA’s Secret Society site and spin Brooklyn Babylon one more time after the jump.
