Edition: Jazz Big Band Arrangement

Description: Swing - Difficult

Publisher: Jazz Lines Publications

Dameron arranged Our Delight for the Billy Eckstine Orchestra, and when that ensemble folded, Dizzy Gillespie added the setting to his book, playing it frequently. When he recorded The Magic Touch for Riverside Records, he made a new setting of the tune.

In 1962, publisher Bregman, Vocco & Conn asked Dameron to arrange this for big band publication, as well as other titles that he’d composed over the years that they owned. This version of Our Delight is the same as the arrangement Dameron wrote for The Magic Touch LP, only re-scored for traditional big band with some modifications.

All of the BVC publications had numerous errors in pitch, rhythm and transposition. This publication has been newly edited and corrected. One such error occurs at Letter E; on the Riverside recording, French horn virtuoso Julius Watkins played the solo; in the original BVC publication, no solo was indicated. I have corrected this so that the solo is now played by Trombone 1. The sound sample has been provided courtesy of the Manhattan School of Music's Concert Jazz Band, conducted by Justin DiCioccio.
