Edition: Jazz Big Band Arrangement

Description: Swing - Medium

Publisher: Lush Life Music

This tune was written by Louis Armstrong and used by him as his theme tune for a number of years. This version is from the Harry James book, and is not only a great Trumpet feature, but a really rare chart too. It has a lilting two-beat feel that swings like crazy from start to finish. The 1st Trumpet has the solo lead, the solo is written out in full and there is a ripping Sax soli where your players need to stand up and show themselves off a bit. There are no sax doubles. A fabulous transcription from Australian legend John Ferguson.
