Item Number: JL.JLP-8824

Tadd Dameron wrote this arrangement for Benny Goodman in 1962 for his tour of Russia (it wasn't recorded). He based it on the arrangement that he had recently written for his Magic Touch record. This arrangement is very close to the one from the Magic Touch album. The main difference is that for this arrangement he added a clarinet part (a solo part for Goodman), which was just the tenor saxophone part from his earlier arrangement. We have restored the tenor feature and removed the clarinet part so that it resembles the arrangement that was recorded on the Magic Touch album. This may be played by a standard big band of 5/4/3/4. Since there isn't a recording of this particular arrangement (as written for Goodman), we have included a sample of the arrangement that was recorded on the Magic Touch album, which will give you an idea of the feel of the chart. Ranges: Trumpet 1 to E6 Trombone 3 to Cb5 (trombone 3 has the lead part).
