Scope and arrangement
The Bob Holt scores date from 1958 to 1977; most were created in the 1970s. All are either manuscripts or manuscript copies. They contain arrangements of over 200 jazz and American songbook standards, the majority for either piano trio or vocalist and piano trio. A few are for jazz big band, or other large (15-18 piece) ensembles with varying instrumentation. The arrangements for large ensemble contain parts as well as full scores; some of the arrangements for piano trio contain parts, but most do not. The collection also holds one folder of sketches and orphan score pages.
The scores are arranged alphabetically by title.
