Description:A String of Pearls : Benny Goodman. Whilst almost everyone knows the Miller version of this Jerry Gray tune, not so many are familiar with the Benny Goodman chart arranged by Mel Powell for Goodman in 1942. It is taken more up-tempo and swings harder. There are solos for Clarinet (Goodman), Tenor (Musso) and Trombone (McGarity) which we have written out in full, though your players can improvise from the chords if preferred. The saxes are scored AATTB, with the Alto 2 taking the Clarinet solo. We have provided two optional parts (Alto 2 & Tenor 1) that allow your Tenor player to take the Clarinet solo.
