Edition: Jazz Big Band Arrangement

Description: Swing - Medium Difficult

Publisher: Lush Life Music

Here is the quirky Billy May version of "You're Driving Me Crazy" from 1950, full of wonderfully humourous musical invention. The arrangement seems to be moving along at a nice steady 2-in-the-bar pace, when all of a sudden something completely different crops up, blasts away for a bar or two, and then normality is restored. Whether it be the Saxes bending their notes, the Trumpets coming in with phrases that could be taken from a Looney Tunes cartoon, or dissonant Trombones playing off the beat, this chart is certainly unusual, and NOT for the dancers! If you want a special arrangement for a special occasion, this is it. There are no Sax doubles, and we have rated it as Medium / Advanced as the Brass ranges are quite high.
