Edition: Jazz Big Band Arrangement

Description: Swing - Difficult

Publisher: Lush Life Music

Here is a transcription of "London Bridge Is Falling Down," taken from Ted Heath's "Old English" album. The chart has a number of instrument doubles; alto 1 on soprano; alto 2 and both tenors on clarinet; baritone on bass clarinet and piano on harpsichord. The sax parts have been printed double sided, with a 'no double' option on the reverse. However, the alto 2 is expected to take a clarinet solo either way. The chart starts and finishes with an almost baroque feel and is an up tempo swinger in between. The swing section has several modulations and the melody is shared between saxes & brass. As might be expected from a Heath chart this arrangement contains plenty of punch as well as good tonal flavor.
