Big band - Medium/Difficult
By Les Brown. Arranged by Bob Martin. Swing. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-1008).

Item Number: JL.LL-1008

Made famous by the Les Brown Orchestra, this tune is one in a series of numbers where a classical theme is given the swing treatment. Other examples are Goodman's Bach Goes To Town, Miller's Moonlight Sonata and Story of a Starry Night. From a piano opening phrase, echoed by trombones, the lower saxes enter with the fugue, the altos vary it, and trumpets are layered on top, to arrive at the tutti swing phrase. Solos for Alto 2, Trombone 2 and Piano. Lead alto doubles clarinet, Baritone doubles alto. Lead trumpet to high C. A moderately easy chart, good to play and really effective in any band library.
