Description:This version of Careless Love was recorded in 1959 by members of the Benny Goodman Orchestra. The chart is very much in the Goodman style and features solo spots by Clarinet (on Alto 1), Tenor and Piano. The Clarinet and Tenor solos are written out in full, though your players can improvise from the chords if preferred. The Piano solo is ad-lib, but we have written out the final 2 measure modulation phrase which leads into the final shout chorus. Although not a hard chart to play, the brass gets quite high in the shout chorus, with lead Trumpet to high Eb and lead Trombone to Bb. The reeds are scored AATTB with Alto 1 taking the Clarinet solo lines.
