Edition: Jazz Big Band Arrangement

Description: Swing - Difficult

Publisher: Jazz Lines Publications

This thrilling Benny Carter arrangement was written and recorded in 1946. 'Jump Call' is Carter's take on 'Bugle Call Rag,' but being Benny Carter, this isn't just another straightforward rendition of the standard. It has great fills, some reharmonization and plenty of room for solos. In fact, it can be opened up and played for several minutes to feature as many solos as you wish. This moves along at 300 b.p.m and features an alto saxophone soloist with the ensemble. There are also solos for trumpet, tenor saxophone, and piano. The piano solo was originally given to the bass player, but this section was cut for the recording. Since this is a smoking arrangement that just takes off, demanding precision for a great performance, this is perfect contest material, and both a great opener and closer for concerts. This is a must-have chart!
