Edition: Jazz Big Band Arrangement

Description: Beguine - Medium Easy

Publisher: Lush Life Music

A rare chart from the Artie Shaw band, "Jungle Drums" is a medium tempo clarinet & tenor Sax feature, and is a throuroughly melodic interpretation of Ernesto Lecuona's original "Beguine." Provided that you have a competent clarinet soloist, it is not a difficult chart to play, and should be well within the reach of most bands. The arrangement switches effortlessly between major and minor keys, and is full of dynamic contrast and tonal colour. The Shaw clarinet solos & Tony Pastor tenor solo have been written out in full, though your players can improvise is they wish. The reeds are scored for CAATT, with altos and tenor 2 doubling clarinets for short passages. An extra baritone part has been included, making the section CAATB and giving you more flexibility in deciding which player takes the clarinet solo line.
