Big band - Difficult
By Woody Herman. Edited by Myles Collins. Arranged by Shorty Rogers. Swing. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-1209).

Item Number: JL.LL-1209

This version of Lemon Drop is very closely based around the original Shorty Rogers chart for the Herman band. The form and structure is the same, though the scat band vocal lines have been replaced with unison saxes instead. There is solo space for baritone, trombone, trumpet, piano and alto, and all solos are to be improvised from the chords provided. Please be advised that this is a difficult chart, not least because of the tempo being so fast. The brass is written high too, with all trumpets needing to hit top C6 and trombones 1-3 reaching Bb4. The 4th trombone is a bass. There are no sax doubles. Style: Swing @ 250+ b.p.m.Ranges:Trumpets 1-4: D6, C6, C6, C6Trombones 1-4: Bb4, Bb4, Bb4, Bb3.
