A String Of Pearls


"String of Pearls? - but everybody's got that in their library". Well, yes and no. There are many bands using a 'stock' dance band arrangement originally written for 5 saxes and 5 brass, and possibly then adapted for a bigger band. The problem is that it's 'wrong' on a number of counts. We have faithfully reproduced the original for you here, and have scored the saxes properly (AATTA) including the two tenor chase solo, voiced the brass correctly, written out the piano solo and fills and tidied up the wrong notes and chord progressions. All of the expressions and dynamics are in place and easy to read. This is a really good value for money chart and will give your band the authentic Miller sound when you play it. Baritone sax on alto throughout. Trumpet solo written for 2nd part, and cued on lead part. Second tenor portion of sax duet cued on 2nd alto part.
