Description:

Chicago - Benny Goodman. Here is Goodman's 1947 hard swinging version of Fred Fisher's enduring classic. (Please don't confuse it with the earlier, and more predictable, 1934 Henderson chart). This later version, whilst still very Goodman in style, has more clearly defined sectional work, is less reliant on background riffs to maintain the pulse, and gives more solo space to your players. It features solos for Piano, Clarinet, Alto, Trumpet and your Trombone section. Whilst the brass is scored for 8 voices, the chart is playable if you only have 3 Trombones in the band. Saxes are written for AATTB, with the Clarinet solos on Alto1. The Trumpet solo is written on the second part and cued on 1,3 & 4 too.
