Edition: Jazz Big Band Arrangement

Description: Swing - Difficult

Publisher: Lush Life Music

Here is a swinging interpretation of a traditional French nursery tune, as performed by the Ted Heath band. Aside from a drum solo towards the close, the chart is all sectional work. It opens in a quasi-military manner (a-la "St. Louis Blues") and builds for 28 measures, through two modulations, to the main body of the chart. Although fairly straightforward to play, the chart contains some interesting harmonic elements and rhythmic structures that add real interest. The brass ranges are fairly high (lead Trumpet to Eb and lead Trombone to Db) and there are no sax doubles.
