Edition: Jazz Big Band Arrangement with Vocal

Description: Swing - Medium Difficult

Publisher: Lush Life Music

"Birmingham Bounce" is a postwar chart from the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra, featuring the singing and fiery Trumpet of Charlie Shavers. This is a very good dance chart and it has a lot of nice features in the arrangement - Vocal stops, hand claps, powerful ensemble passages, a solo spot for Tenor and some screaming Trumpet licks too. As the name suggests, this chart really bounces along. We have rated it Medium / Advanced, as the Trumpet soloist has a written F6 and the Trombones need to reach Bb. Birmingham Bounce is a refreshing change to the usual vocal fare. The key is Eb and would suit a high Baritone or an Alto.
