Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy


The Andrews Sisters produced a huge number of hits, and Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy is one of their finest. Alan Glasscock has scored a cracking version here, and has notated the Vocal Trio parts with exceptional skill. There were a couple of key verions of this song. One was the Decca release and the other done for the movie "Buck Pirates". The Decca chart used a small backing band, the move a full big band. Our version fuses the two and takes the best from both. Both of the Trumpet solos are fully written out (intro and in the middle section of the chart), and the Boogie Woogie piano / bass lines are all there. Although this is a Vocal Trio, we have also included a Solo Vocal part, should you wish to perform this chart with just one female vocalist. The Saxes are scored for Clarinet, 2 Altos and 2 Tenors throughout.
