Edition: Jazz Big Band Arrangement with Vocal

Description: Fast Swing - Difficult

Publisher: Jazz Lines Publications

This is a tremendous chart from master arranger Marion Evans, recorded by Helen O'Connell for her 'Here's Helen' album. This is not a transcription, the original handwritten manuscript was used to produce this arrangement.

This arrangement moves at brisk pace of approx. 240 b.p.m (quarter note) and features a lot of beautifully crafted, syncopated unison lines. The drummer can really shine on this chart as crisp accents can help carry the band during the shout sections.

The trombones open on plungers. There is a brief interlude that originally featured someone in the band calling out "Just one more once, baby!" We have included this part as a 'band yell' as it is a nice break in the action and can provide a bit of humor. There are no doubles. Trumpet 1 goes to a high E once but doesn't get higher than C# otherwise. Vocal Key: F modulating to Gb.
