Description: Swing - Medium

Publisher: Lush Life Music

"Roll 'Em" was a hugely popular number for the Benny Goodman band, and its infectious boogie feel will have dancers flocking to the the floor. Our version is true to the Goodman original, with a couple of modifications. The brass has been augmented up to 8 and the piano solo passage has been written in conventional 12-bar form, rather than a mix of 12 and 10 found in the origianal. Whilst the Piano solo is ad-lib, the other solos (Clarinet & Trumpet) are fully written out, though your players can improvise from the chords provided if they prefer. Alan Glasscock has done a teriffic job with this chart, and the articulations and phrasing marks on the parts will enable your players to produce an authentic sound. The reeds are written for Clarinet, 2 Altos & 2 Tenors, with no sax doubles.
