Edition: Jazz Big Band Arrangement

Description: Swing - Advanced

Publisher: Jazz Lines Publications

This startling arrangement by Paul Villepigue was recorded by Charlie Barnet in 1949. Based around a g minor blues, this chart features a soprano saxophone solo. The arrangement opens with the trombones stating the initial melody. The trumpets then enter with a staccato melody that mirrors what the previous trombone statement. After a quiet 4-bar interlude the sax section comes in with the soprano saxophone on top. Throughout this section Latin percussion is featured with short solos. Villepigue's harmonies are very reminiscent of what the Ellington band was doing at the same time. Though not well known, this chart is a must-have for your band.
