Description:

This arrangement of Ravel's Bolero is somewhat quirky, yet is an interesting swing take on a classical tune. Goodman recorded this chart in 1939 with a band that contained a 6-piece brass section, and we have augmented it to a full 8-piece section. Aside from the solo Clarinet lines, the chart has no other instrument solos. Reeds are scored CAATT, with all saxes required to double on Clarinet. The Goodman solos are written out in full, as played by BG.
