Arranged by:Jimmy Mundy
Transcribed by:Myles Collins
Description:This arrangement of Bugle Call Rag, originally scored for the band by Jimmy Mundy, was one of the charts that helped launch the Goodman Orchestra into the swing era that fateful August day at the Palomar Ballroom in 1935. We have transcribed the 1936 studio recording here, and adapted it up to 8 brass whilst maintaining the feel and flair of the original chart. All of the solos are written out in full - Clarinet, Trombone, Tenor & Trumpet - and we have added in Gene Krupa's little drum licks behind the solo breaks too. The reeds are scored for CAATT, and both Altos double on Clarinet. This is a fast, challenging chart, and highly rewarding to play.
