Big band - Medium Easy
By Perez "Prez" Prado. Arranged by Myles Collins. Mambo. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-1233).
Mambo Jambo is another fine composition from Perez Prado, and is a powerful Mambo chart that has an all pervading swing feel. The usual Prado trademarks are here, with unison saxes in the first chorus, overlaid with stabbing brass in the repeat and great big pedal notes from the trombones in the bridges. Although this chart is an instrumental, all of your blowers get to sing the last chorus, before the piece rounds off with a restatement of the bridge. Classic Prado, and great fun all around. There are no sax doubles.
