Edition: Jazz Big Band Arrangement

Description: Swing - Medium

Publisher: Lush Life Music

This is simply a great jump jive number, made famous by the Glen Gray Orchestra, and to the best of out knowledge has never been published before, anywhere. If your band plays to a dance crowd then this arrangement is an absolute must have. "No Name Jive" is a huge six and a half minutes long, and drives from beginning to end. Technically it's not difficult, though the band needs to be tight and crisp in order to achieve the relaxed feel that makes the number work so well. There are some instrument doubles. Saxes 1,2 and 3 all double Clarinet, and the Baritone doubles Alto. Lead Alto also needs a Soprano if your Alto 2 can't hit high F# and A. All solos are written out as exact transcriptions of the original, though players may improvise if they wish. The second trumpet takes two solos and both are cross cued on the lead part. The score sample is the first 6 pages of a 35 page score, which we have ring-bound for ease of use.
