Description:

This is Will Bradley's interpretation of Florian Hermann's melody, Valse Hommage, which set music to the old Ukranian romance "Ochi chyornye" way back in 1884. This chart is a hard swinging one, full of punch and punctuation in the brass, and with shimmering high sax lines. The Tenor solo is written out but can be improvised if preferred. The Trombone solo is written on the lead part and cued on the other 3 bone parts. Both Altos double Clarinet and the other 3 reeds have optional Clarinet doubles too. Not an easy chart to play, but when played tight it sounds great.
