Edition: Jazz Big Band Arrangement

Description: Swing - Medium

Publisher: Lush Life Music

Buck Ram (founder of the Platters) wrote the tune which Bill Finegan crafted into a Glenn Miller classic. It was one of the few arrangements that Billy May carried over into his own band. Our transcription has been drawn from both, almost identical, versions. As you might expect, it's a trumpet feature, and May's trumpet solos have been written out in full, assigning the solos to the second trumpet part. This chart, whilst not fast, swings like crazy, and the melody riff is infectious. The brass ranges are generally moderate, though all four trombones are written to reach Bb4 in the shout chorus. There are a couple of 16th note sax runs which sound tricky, but the notes fall easily under the fingers. There are no sax doubles. Duration: 3 mins 10 secs; Style: Swing @ 140 b.p.m.
