Big band - Medium
By The Tommy Dorsey Orchestra. Arranged by Myles Collins. Swing. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-1034).

Item Number: JL.LL-1034

Another classic from the pen of Cy Oliver, and a famous tune for the Dorsey band, though much copied and adapted by other bands. Anita O'Day recorded a vocal version with Gene Krupa, and Ted Heath used it as a stock chart. This is as per the original, though lacks the strings used by Dorsey in the original arrangement. We can provide a string part on request. Both Alto saxes double Clarinet (for the great middle passage of Clarinets over a pair of muted Trumpets), and the lead Alto takes both Clarinet solos, which has been written out. Likewise, the Piano solo is written out too. This is a medium to advanced chart in terms of difficulty. By far the trickiest bit is the semiquaver, semitonal sax run which introduces the key change into the last chorus. Nimble fingers are needed. Trumpets 1-4: D6, D6, A5, F#5 Trombones 1-4: C5, A4, G4, E4.
