Edition: Jazz Big Band Arrangement with Vocal

Description: Swing - Difficult

Publisher: Lush Life Music

"Let Me Off Uptown" was a huge hit for the Krupa band, featuring Anita O'Day and Roy Eldridge. The chart is a medium tempo swing duet between the two and has some lovely spoken interplay between them. We realize than not many bands have trumpet players who also sing, so we have written both vocal lines on one part, and cross-cued the male vocal onto the 2nd trumpet part just in case. This chart is also a trumpet feature, with the 2nd trumpet taking a screaming solo when the vocals are over. Eldridge's original version (which we have written out in full) goes up to a G6, though we have provided chords should your player wish to improvise. All 3 other trumpets are written to Eb6 during a unison run up to the T2 solo, but 3 & 4 can be dropped an octave if they can't reach the range. This chart would be a medium if the soloist improvises and T3&4 drop the octave. There are no sax doubles.
