Hot Toddy


This wonderful version Hot Toddy is from the Ted Heath band, and features your Baritone player and second Trumpet. The chart opens with a rumbling Bari line backed by hand claps from the band. The Trombone section takes the first soli, the Saxes join for the second, backed by the Trumpets who then give a run-up to the muted Trumpet solo. We have written this solo out as originally played, though your player can improvise from the chords if desired. The chart builds from here, with glissing Trombones against a unison Sax repeat of the melody riff leading into a big brass soli, and finishing up with a fading Trombone soli down to pianissimo, and a band blast to finish. Great fun and a real crowd pleaser too.
