Here's a great swinging chart from the Ted Heath Orchestra, full of punch and power. It opens with unison trumpets carrying the melody call, with a band response phrase from Don't Get Around Much Anymore. The reeds take the middle 8 and the chart moves into a solo spot for lead Tenor for the first half of the second chorus. Unison Trumpets take the second middle 8, with an 8 measure Piano solo leading into the tutti shout chorus, and boy, does it shout! There's a solo spot for Trumpet 2 here, before the chart climaxes with a bang, and then a sudden change of dynamic in the last 2 measures to bring matters to a relaxed close. All of the solos are written out, though your players can improvise their own from the chords if preferred. There are no sax doubles. Swing @ 190 b.p.m. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4: E6, D6, B5, B5 Trombones 1-4: Bb4, Ab4, F4, Eb4.
