Jazz ensemble (5-4-4-3) - Grade 5
Composed by Traditional. Arranged by John Bambridge. Doc Severinsen Series. Swing. Score and set of parts. Published by Sierra Music (S1.SMP-954).

Item Number: S1.SMP-954

As recorded by the Tonight Show Band on "Once More With Feeling" (Amherst), John's arrangement (to quote Doc Severinsen), is a "masterpiece." We agree with that. The trumpet solo part is very short and can easily be played within a section of 4 trumpets. Wonderful ensemble writing is the key feature of this marvelous arrangement. It moves beautifully through a series of key changes, with lead tpt. only to a written high D. This is a very playable and special chart. 5-4-4-3.
