Edition: Jazz Big Band Arrangement

Description: Swing - Medium Easy

Publisher: Lush Life Music

Here is Artie Shaw's delightfully quirky take on "Vilia," from "The Merry Widow" by Franz Lehar. Being a Shaw chart it naturally features clarinet, with some smooth ensemble writing and a flowing sax soli too. The brass ranges are moderate, with no hidden surprises and Shaw's clarinet solo is written out in full, though, if preferred, your player can improvise from the chords. The reeds are scored CAATT, with the 4 saxes having clarinet doubles. However, the sax parts double sided, with a no clarinet double option on the reverse, in case your section doesn't all double. Style: Swing @ 145 b.p.m.
