Hound Dog arranged by Andy Firth. For big band with vocal. Swing. Medium Easy. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2208).
Hound Dog' is firmly associated with Elvis, and Clapton did a good cover of it too. However, this version is not really rock 'n' roll. It opens in a slight funk/Latin groove in C minor, moving to C major for the vocal entry, but maintains the Latin feel. After the first vocal chorus the brass takes a beautifully-crafted descending minor phrygian bridge which the saxes then pick up to modulate into the instrumental chorus, followed by a ripping tenor sax solo. The vocalist re-enters in the original key and the chart switches to a rock feel for the final chorus. This arrangement is wonderfully conceived and is a totally refreshing approach which works extremely well. The vocal key is C, and there are no sax doubles. Sorry, there is no sound sample at this time, but we aim to provide one in the near future.
