Edition: Jazz Big Band Arrangement

Description: Swing - Difficult

Publisher: Lush Life Music

A rip-snorting swing chart from the Harry James book. "Trumpet Blues" opens with a short band fanfare in half time, and then breaks into a driving swing boogie. The middle half-time "Cantabile" provides the contrast, but breaks back into swing boogie for the last choruses. A feature for your trumpet section, but be warned that they will need a few minutes to recover afterwards. You will need a good Trumpet section to play this arrangement. It is in the original Key of Bb, and modulates to D for the end choruses. A genuine crowd pleaser. Swing @ 180 - 210 b.p.m. Ranges:


Full Score
2 Alto Saxophones
2 Tenor Saxophones
Baritone Saxophone
4 Trumpets
4 Trombones
Trumpets 1-4: E6, D#6, B5, G#5
Trombones 1-4: Bb4, G4, F#4, F#4
