Edition: Jazz Big Band Arrangement

Description: Swing - Medium

Publisher: Lush Life Music

"Big John's Special" is a romping swing chart from the early years of the Benny Goodman Orchestra, when much of his success came courtesy of Fletcher Henderson's arrangements. We have expanded the chart up to 8 brass, and because the chart is not a Clarinet feature - it only has an 8 measure solo - we have scored the Saxes for a regular AATTB section, with Alto 2 doubling the Clarinet solo. We have also written out the Trumpet solos and the Piano solo in "stride" style. This tune makes an excellent choice for the swing dance crowd, and it is heaps of fun to play.

Full Score
2 Alto Saxophones (Alto 2 doubles on clarinet)
2 Tenor Saxophones
Baritone Saxophone
4 Trumpets
4 Trombones
Trumpets 1-4: D6, Db6, Bb5, Bb5
Trombones 1-4: A4, A4, A4, F4
