Jazz ensemble (5-4-4-4) - Grade 5
Composed by Duke Ellington (1899-1974). Arranged by Oliver Nelson. Oliver Nelson Big Band Series. Swing. Score and set of parts. Published by Sierra Music (S1.SMP-398).

Item Number: S1.SMP-398

Nelson wrote an album for Johnny Hodges (Black, Brown and Beautiful, RCA) featuring the compositions of Duke Ellington and also some of his original things. This Ellington tune just romps and stomps right from the start. The ensemble shouts just scream with wonderful voicings that lift you up out of your seat! There is solo space for Alto Sax (of course), Trumpet and Piano. Ellington's melody and Nelson's arrangement ...... an absolute winning combination! Your band will love this one! 5-4-4-4.
