Edition: Jazz Big Band Arrangement

Description: Swing - Medium

Publisher: Lush Life Music

Transcribed from the original Benny Carter arrangement of Hoagy Carmichael's tune, this Gene Krupa chart is one of Roy Eldridge's best known solo works, and is an out-and-out trumpet feature. The solo line has been written out in full, as played by the man himself, and included are all of his articulations and phrasing to enable your solo player to give a performance that is faithful to the original. Aside from the fairly difficult solo part, the band lines are straightforward, yet need to be played with good intonation and dynamics, so as not to detract from or drown out the solo line. Aside from alto 1 taking a cameo trumpet answerback solo on clarinet at the end, there are no sax doubles. Brass ranges are fairly moderate too. This chart is equally as good played as a last set ballad or a concert feature.
