Edition: Jazz Big Band Arrangement with Vocal

Description: Swing - Medium

Publisher: Lush Life Music

"Massachusetts" is a classic chart from the Gene Krupa band, featuring Anita O'Day on vocal. It is a high energy, up-tempo swinger that is full of great sectional work and hard swingin' lines. We have written out the little 4 measure Trumpet fill-in solo that signals the second vocal bridge, and have written out Krupa's 4 measure drum solo that kicks into the instrumental shout after the first vocal chorus. The brass ranges are moderate and there are no sax doubles.
