By Artie Shaw. By Artie Shaw. Arranged by Edited Robert C. Olivia. Jazz. 68 pages. Robert C. Olivia #986671. Published by Robert C. Olivia (A0.1403494).

This representation of the Artie Shaw Concerto for Clarinet is a note for note transcription of what Shaw recorded on the record version and in the motion picture. These are the parts for the big band and strings. 

Shaw’s solos as played in both the motion picture and record version are represented in great detail with the film solo shown as ossia. It is interesting to view these for both historical and educational references. Techniques are carefully detailed to show ornaments, slurs, accents etc. 

This restores many elements missing in other scores. The strings are restored to the original voicings so important to the style of the classic sound of the period.

The solos are transcribed note for note as played by greats such as Billy Butterfield on Trumpet, Johnny Guarnieri on Piano, Les Robinson on Alto Sax, Jerry Jerome on Tenor Sax, Vernon “Brownie” Brown on Trombone.

There is an entire sax riff that was extemporaneously improvised during the session that is missing entirely in other versions. 

The instrumentation is also restored to only the instruments that were used in Shaw’s recordings. There are many details that represent the genre and gesture of jazz idiom. Lastly, if used for educational purposes, the intention is that this should be used with saxophones. However, there are optional parts for clarinets and bassoons that can be used only if saxes are not available.
