Here is the great Woodchoppers Ball. Co-written and first performed by Woody Herman, this chart became a mainstay in the repertoire of all Herman's bands. Our version is based on Woody's, though rescored for regualar sections (Saxes AATTB, 8 brass). This arrangement features solo space for Clarinet (on 1st Alto part), Tenor, Trumpet and Trombone, and has that characteristic chromatic set of key changes at the end that gives the whole chart a thumping climax. A superb swing chart. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4: A5, F5, D5, C5 Trombones 1-4: Bb4, Bb4, Bb4, Bb4.
