Description:Here is the lush and lovely Danny Boy (a.k.a londonderry Air) as played by the Miller Band. Another excellent transcription from the pen of Alan Glasscock, this chart features Miller-voiced saxes, beautifully balanced muted brass and some delicate piano work which is written out for your pianist in the places that matter. Though the playing time is short (at just over two minutes) this chart is perfect for those gentler moments in a set, or for a late night closer. The lead Trombone is the cameo-featured solo instrument and its range goes quite high - to top C#, hence we have graded this as a medium piece. Lead Alto is on Clarinet throughout. Second Alto doubles Clarinet and the Baritone doubles Bass Clarinet, though we have also cued the passage with notes for the Bari in case a Bass Clarinet is unavailable.
