Description:

Conversation Piece is a beautifully crafted medium tempo chart written around September 1940 by Bill Finegan for the Miller band. The saxes are scored for 3 Altos and two Tenors, with Alto 2 taking a quick Clarinet double for the last two measures of the piece. There are solos for both Tenors, Alto 2 and Trumpet 2 (all written out "as played") and, as you might expect from a Finegan composition, the melody lines and accompanying band backings are crafted with some style. This is a rare Glenn Miller chart and deserves a place in any library.
