Description:Here is the Glenn Miller Orchestra's take on the US Navy song "Anchors Aweigh". It's up-tempo and bouncy, with a driving rhythmic feel. Alto 1 doubles Clarinet (and takes the Clarinet solo). Trumpet 2 has an ad-lib solo too and the chart finishes up with a rousing shout chorus. Good technical proficiency and accurate playing is needed from all sections of the band in order to keep things sounding tight, but if your band has the chops for it, this is a real rouser of a chart.
