Non Stop Flight


Non Stop Flight is a really bouncy swing chart and is perfect for dancing to. The pulse is infectious and will really get the feet tapping. Written by Artie Shaw, it naturally features the Clarinet, and also Tenor Sax. We have written out all of the solos, including the solo licks and fills, plus the obligato Clarinet solo that floats over the rest of the band in the last chorus. Your Clarinet player will need to be dexterous, as some pretty nimble fingerwork will be needed. The brass ranges are moderate, and it's not a tough blow for them. The Saxes are scored for Solo Clarinet, 2 Altos and 2 Tenors. We have expanded the original 6 brass up to 8 too. If you are looking for a good dance chart, or a stunning concert piece, you've just found it!
