Description:

Boom Shot is a rare gem of a chart from the Glenn Miller book, co-written by Mr. Miller himself. It swings with a lilt (if not played too fast) and features your 2nd Trumpet as well as solos (written) for 1st Alto & Trombone, and space for some background improvised Piano too. The song itself is unusual, being not much more that an 8 bar melody, but the orchestration is superb and the series of modulations that run through the chart give the whole thing a series of constant kicks that keep it fresh and moving. Baritone doubles Alto.
