Item Number: JL.LL-1152

Frenesi was a tune popularised and played by many of the well known bands of the late 30's and early 40's. Our version is an adaptation of the Artie Shaw version, but re-scored for a regular big band line-up, as Shaw's chart made heavy use of strings, and had an orchestral flavour to it. We have kept the structure of the original, and have transcribed all of the solos (Clarinet, Tenor, Trumpet & Piano). The re-voicing of the chart means that the saxes (written C, A, T, T,B) have plenty of instrument doubles. The Alto doubles Clarinet & Flute, both Tenors double Clarinet and the Bari doubles Alto. The chart also floats between Swing and Rumba feels, so your players will need to be alert!
