Edition: Jazz Big Band Arrangement

Description: Swing - Medium Difficult

Publisher: Jazz Lines Publications

Tchaikovsky's "Nutcracker" ballet has served as a source of inspiration for jazz and pop artists for a number of years. The Glenn Miller Orchestra finally decided to take their own crack at it in 1993, enlisting the help of arranger Dave Wolpe to give the most famous melodies from the holiday classic a new twist. These arrangements, from In the Nutcracker Mood, pay homage to the original orchestrations while coating them in the unmistakable "sweet" Miller sound. Mellow and easy-swinging, these arrangements are sure to bring holiday cheer to your musicians and audiences alike.
