My Guy's Come Back


My Guy's Come Back is the Mel Powell arrangement for the Miller USAAF band, and is an extended version compared to the civilian band chart which we have transcribed from a radio air check. It is at heart a Piano feature based around an often recurring riff that is shared around the sections throughout the piece. There are improvised solos for Trumpet 2 and Piano, with fill-in solos for Drums too. At a steady 140 tempo, this chart makes for good dancing, and its relaxed pulse has an fectuous feel. The reeds are scored AATTB, and all reed players are called on to double Clarinet, though the Baritone / Clarinet line is a octave lower double of the lead line, so if your Baritone player doesn't play Clarinet he will not be missed too much. A nice rarity from the Glenn Miller book.
