Edition: Jazz Big Band Arrangement with Vocal

Description: Latin - Medium

Publisher: Lush Life Music

"Tampico" is a fun Latin vocal chart from the Stan Kenton Orchestra, originally sung by June Christy and the boys in the band. The chart opens with a powerful intro and moves immediately into the vocals, with the band singing the choruses and your vocalist taking the verses. The band vocal lines are cued onto all of the reed and brass parts. The structure of the chart is intro, 4 band/vocal passages, a 16-measure instrumental section, one more band/vocal passage and a big instrumental to finish. The chart could also make a good audience participation number, as the chorus is easy to sing. There are no solos and no sax doubles, and the vocal key is Ab throughout.
