Item Number: JL.LL-2120

Indian Love Call is a classic vocal number from the Artie Shaw orchestra, featuring everyone in the band on vocals! Though it might sound slightly corny when you listen to the audio, when this chart is performed live it is a real wow. The tune opens with solo clarinet and toms, then the saxes join in and the band accompanies with falsetto shouts. Then into the first Tutti chorus at full speed ahead. The vocal chorus (suitable for Alto female or high Baritone/Tenor male vocalists) is unusual in that it is only vocal & rhythm, with the rest of the band singing the answerbacks to the vocal line. After the vocal the band is back with flat-out swinging riffs and the whole thing rounds off with a screaming Clarinet lip-gliss. The Saxes are scored for solo Clarinet, 2 Altos and 2 Tenors. All the Saxes double Clarinets (mainly unison) and it won't really matter if the Alto 2 (your Bari player) doesn't play any Clarinet parts. We have scored his lines as the lowest voice in the harmonized Clari passages. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4: Db6, Bb5, G5, E5 Trombones 1-4 Bb4, G4, F4, D4 Vocal key: Eb Male or Female Vocal Range: F3 - G4 (9 steps).
