Description:

Here is the Andrews Sisters' fabulous version of Bounce Me Brother from the 1941 film "Buck Privates". Other than expanding the band to a full 5444 line-up, this chart is "as played" in the movie. The arrangement is essentially in three sections; the long band swing intro; the SSA vocal and the band swing ending. If you wish to shorten the chart a little, we have given you two options: a 'vocal ending' prior to the final band section, else omit the intro and start with the vocal. The vocal chart is written 'as sung' by the Andrews Sisters and accurately recreates their vocal harmonies. The saxes are scored AATTB and the Alto 2 part has a short Clarinet double. The vocal key is C, modulating to Ab and reverting to C.
