Item Number: JL.LL-1248

Lover Come Back to Me is generally played at a fairly brisk pace. However, this rare chart from the Artie Shaw book takes the tune at a pretty relaxed tempo which allows all of the harmonic structures in the chart to shine through. The arrangement features solos for piano, clarinet, tenor & trumpet, and the sax team have a lot of tightly scored soli sectional work too. As the solo clarinet part is only really involved at the start of the arrangement and the tenor & trumpet solos have been cued onto the part, so you can make more of a clarinet feature out of the chart. Reeds are written for CAATT and an optional baritone part has been included in case your band wishes to use the chart as a clarinet soloist feature backed by full band. All of the solos are transcribed as originally played, though your players can improvise from the chords provided.
