Edition: Jazz Big Band Arrangement

Description: Swing - Medium

Publisher: Lush Life Music

Here is Lush Life's transcription of Artie Shaw's sublime take on Moonglow. The original concept has been adapted by removing the string lines and re-scoring them into the band, making the chart playable by a standard 5444 line-up. As a reference for this transcription the Shaw recording and also the Les Brown chart (which was essentially a copy of the AS chart) have both been consulted. In addition to the clarinet lead, the arrangement features solos for piano and trombone 2. The piano solo is taken from the Brown version and the trombone solo from the Shaw chart. The reeds are scored for AATTB, with saxes 1-4 doubling clarinet and baritone on bass clarinet. However, the sax parts are printed double sided with a "no double" option on the reverse, though the clarinet lead is taken by alto 1 in both versions. The clarinet solo lines are scored as played by Shaw.
