Description: Swing - Medium Easy

Publisher: Lush Life Music

"Long Tall Mama" is a solid swing chart written for the Glenn Miller band by Billy May, though credited to his wife Arletta for fiscal reasons at the time. Miller recorded this with his civilian and USAAF bands, and there were subtle differences between the two. This is the later version, and features solo spots for Alto, Clarinet (on the Alto 2 part), Tenor and Trumpet. We have written out all of the solos, though your players can improvise on the chords if they prefer. This chart would make a fine addition to your Miller collection, and is not that tricky to play. Alto 2 doubles Clarinet.

Full Score
2 Alto Saxophones (Alto 2 doubles on clarinet)
2 Tenor Saxophones
Baritone Saxophone
4 Trumpets
4 Trombones
Trumpets 1-4: D6, D6, G5, E5
Trombones 1-4: A4, F4, D4, C4

I like to say a few words about Long Tall Mama. The great Billy May wrote it, arranged it and made that great solo on trumpet. Other soloists are Tex Beneke on altosax, Ernie Caceres on clarinet and Al Klink on tenorsax.
