At the height of his career in the mid-1930s, Leroy Anderson began arranging for Arthur Fiedler's Boston Pops Orchestra. Later, Fiedler encouraged him to write his own tunes for the Pops. His compositions, more than 50 in number, virtually define the sound of the contemporary American pops orchestra. Blue Tango was a #1 hit in 1951, juxtaposing the charismatic melody over a traditional tango pulse. The work captured the spirit of an era.

    Basically the melody and the harmonies are all there. This one has some subtle harmonies that I enjoy playing and listening to.The only downside is that I am an organist, which means my feet play the bass line on the pedals. There are numerous times when I have to...

    go up an octave to hit a note because I run out of pedals on the low end. I'm actually considering transposing it to another key just to make the bassline work better.
