Wow. This is a tough, storming swing chart from the talented Linda Eder, and is not just for Christmas. The arrangement is a two-tune medley of Here Comes Santa Claus and Santa Claus is Coming to Town, and swings for all of its five minutes. The opening is memorable, there is a solo spot for lead Alto, a surprise change of feel in the middle taken from Sing Sing Sing and Oh Tannenbaum which leads into the second half of the medley. This is a huge chart and not for the faint hearted. If your band can pull it off it will be a showstopper. Both Altos double Flutes, both Tenors double Clarinets and the Baritone doubles Bass Clarinet, though we have also cued this passage with notes for the Bari in case a Bass Clarinet is unavailable. This transcription has been a labour of love for Alan Glasscock and he has done it with aplomb. Vocal keys: Db/Bb/CSwing @ 170 b.p.m. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4: G6, C6, A5, G5 Trombones 1-4: Bb4, Ab4, Eb4, C4 Female Vocal: Ab3 - E5.
