Description:The Andrews Sisters had enormous success with Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy, and this chart has the same infectious eight beat boogie woogie feel. We have scored the vocals for SSA female trio, and have also included a solo vocal sheet, making the arrangement singable with only one vocalist. We have augmented the original studio version up to full big band too. The brass ranges are very moderate, with the lead Trumpet only reaching A. The piano part is fully written out, though your player can improvise a boogie woogie line if preferred. The vocal key is Bb, and the instrumental section modulates to Eb. Reeds are written for AATTB, and there are no sax doubles.
