Here is Part 2 of Artie Shaw's stunning Concerto for Clarinet. The chart opens with four stylish Clarinet cadenzas, after which the drummer picks up the tempo with a floor-tom solo, joined by solo Clarinet for 40 measures. Briefly into 3/4 time for band chord stabs, the Clarinet & Drum solo continues. Another time shift for more stabs, then three tutti swing choruses to a false finish. The Clarinet soloist wraps things up with a further four cadenza passages. This is a very challenging work for solo clarinet, and will need a great player to pull it off. The saxes are scored for 2 Altos and 2 Tenors. The Clarinet range is up to super C. Trumpets 1-4 E6, C6, G5, E5 Trombones 1-4 Bb4, F4, D4, Bb3.
