Description:

A landmark chart from the Benny Goodman Orchestra. Goodman used many of Fletcher Henderson's arrangements for his band, but in the case of Chrisopher Columbus he played his own version, probably because the tune was Henderson's theme. We have adapted the Goodman original to suit an 8 brass line-up, and have transcribed all of the original solos (Clarinet, Trombone & Trumpet), though your players can improvise on the chords if they wish. The brass ranges are fairly moderate, making the chart playable by bands of all abilities. The saxes are scored for Clarinet, 2 Altos & 2 Tenors.
