Edition: Jazz Big Band Arrangement

Description: Swing - Difficult

Publisher: Lush Life Music

"March of the Toys" is a rarely heard, yet exquisite chart, originally scored by Dean Kincaide for the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra. The tune itself is from the second act of Victor Herbert's "Babes In Toyland" operetta of 1903. Swinging the classics was fairly common during the Swing Era, but no one ever did it better than Dorsey. This chart calls for all your reed players to double Clarinet - AATT on Clarinet, and Bari on Bass Clarinet. However, we have written cue notes on the Bari part which avoid having to double, and both Tenors can play up an octave to avoid the double. The original flavour will be somewhat lost, but the result will be acceptable. The original Trumpet & TD's Trombone solos are written out in full, and the phrasing and articulation markings are all there, to allow you to reproduce an authentic performance.
