Description:

Chicken Reel is a rare chart from the Glenn Miller band, originally penned by Bill Finegan. The arrangement opens with a unison rhythm riff, backed by band calls, and from there it builds in layers - Saxes, Trombones then Trumpets, leading into a bouncy Trumpet solo (written out in full). The chart fills and builds to a rousing climax. All saxes are written to double Clarinets for the final shout, though we have cued the Alto 3 part to be able to stay on Alto at this point, and both Tenors can play 8va. However, Altos 1 & 2 need to double. This is a great little chart and is good for dancers too.
