Edition: Jazz Big Band Arrangement

Description: Swing Waltz - Difficult

Publisher: Lush Life Music

Written by Thomas "Fats" Waller in 1942, not much more than a year before his untimely death, "Jitterbug Waltz" is one of only a few known jazz waltz tunes first recorded prior to the 1950s. The melody was inspired by some piano exercises that Waller's son Maurice had been working on. This version is by the Ted Heath band, recorded in 1953, and it features a written trumpet solo, lush trombone solis and some powerful ensemble passages. Good intonation and dynamic contrast is needed when you play this one. There are no sax doubles.
