Edition: Jazz Big Band Arrangement

Description: Swing - Medium

Publisher: Lush Life Music

"Conversation Piece" is a beautifully crafted medium tempo chart written around September 1940 by Bill Finegan for the Miller band. The saxes are scored for 3 altos and two tenors, with alto 2 taking a quick clarinet double for the last two measures of the piece. There are solos for both tenors, alto 2 and trumpet 2 (all written out as-played) and, as you might expect from a Finegan composition, the melody lines and accompanying band backings are crafted with some style. This is a rare Glenn Miller chart and deserves a place in any library. Style: Swing @ 125 bpm.
