Edition: Jazz Big Band Arrangement

Description: Swing - Medium Difficult

Publisher: Lush Life Music

"B-19" is a driving swing number, clearly taking some influences from tunes such as "Sing Sing Sing" and "Bizet Has His Day," and the chart has a raw and angry feel about it, as one might expect from a tune whose name is that of a famous aircraft. Being a Harry James chart there is naturally a big solo spot for Trumpet (HJ's chorus is fully written out on the 2nd Trumpet part), and we have transcribed the Tenor solo too. The original was recorded by HJ with a string section (which you can hear on the audio). However, we have modified the arrangement and written the strings back ino the Saxes, and given a solo spot to 1st Trombone. We feel that this maintains the integrity of the original and makes for a more readily playable chart. We have rated the arrangement as Medium / Advanced mainly due to the range requirement of your Trumpet soloist. Aside from this the ranges for the other brass are moderate. There are no Sax doubles.
