Edition: Jazz Big Band Arrangement with Vocal

Description: Boogie Woogie - Advanced

Publisher: Lush Life Music

"Drum Boogie" was a big hit for the Gene Krupa band, featuring Irene Daye on vocals (rather than his regular Anita O'Day). A couple of minor changes have been made to the original - the reeds are now AATTB, with A1 doubling clarinet (the GK original was A,A,T/C,T) and the brass is 4/4 (expanded from the original 4/3). This chart naturally features your drummer, and the drum part has been written to reflect Krupa's playing. You'll also need a good pianist to pull off the left hand boogie-woogie stride. The opening band combo is written on alto 1, tenor 1, trumpet 1 and trombone 1. These players take the tenor & trumpet solos too. All of the band backing vocals are written on the individual parts, the vocal chart is notated as-sung by Irene Daye and the vocal key is Eb. This is not an easy chart, but will sound fantastic when done right. Boogie @ 170 b.p.m.
