Edition: Jazz Big Band Arrangement with Vocal

Description: Swing - Difficult

Publisher: Lush Life Music

"Marie" is a laid back male vocal chart from the Tommy Dorsey orchestra, also singable by female alto, featuring trombone, tenor, and the trumpet section. The original Bunny Berigan trumpet solo has been expanded into a sectional soli, as Dorsey did in his later recordings of this chart, and this passage calls for tight and accurate sectional play. After a short intro the trombone takes the first solo chorus, backed by the band. The second chorus is the vocal, with the band singing counterpoint to the vocal soloist. At the end of this chorus the trumpet section picks up into the modulation into Eb and rips the next 32 measures, backed by the saxes. The trumpet ranges are quite high here in places, with the lead reaching F6 and the second to D6. The trombone then solos for 16 measures, followed by the tenor, and a quick four measure passage in similar style to the intro rounds off the piece. The vocal chorus is in C, and there are no sax doubles. 3:30 duration.
