Here is our transcription of the Bobby Pratt version of "When It's Sleepy Time Down South," as performed with the Ted Heath band. Bobby was a gifted trumpeter and a great high note player who died tragically young. This chart is an out-and-out Trumpet feature from start to finish, and will need a fine player to make it work. Pratt's solo uses the full range of the instrument, and then some. The last 12 measures of solo part reach A6, though can be played down an octave, but the results are just not the same. Other than the solo, the brass ranges are moderate, with lead Trumpet to D6 and lead Trombone to B4. Alto's 1&2 double Clarinets, and there are no other sax doubles. Duration: 3 mins 15 secs / Style: Swing @ 76b.p.m
