Item Number: JL.LL-2022

Serenade In Blue is another classic from the Glenn Miller Orchestra with the Modernaires, and Alan Glasscock's transcription is a true reflection of the original.The chart is written for Male vocalist with a 4-piece backing group. Perhaps the trickiest part of the chart is Billy May's unique opening passage which needs to be played with confidence and a relaxed feel. The saxes have a number of instrument doubles: Altos 1 & 2 on Clarinets, Tenor 2 on Bass Clarinet (in the intro), though this may be taken on Tenor if needs be, and Baritone on Alto. The Trumpet solo in the intro is meticulously written out too. All articulations and dynamics are indicated, enabling your band to reproduce one of Millers' best known tunes. Highly recommended.Ranges:Trumpets 1-4 C6, A5, G5, G5 Trombones 1-4 Bb4, G4, Eb4, B3 Vocals Male B2 - D4.
