Description:

Estrellita - Benny Goodman instrumental chart for big band. Benny Goodman had many huge hits, yet some of his finest works remain in relative obscurity. Estrellita can be counted in this category, yet it is an absolutely beautiful piece, with a flowing melody that once heard makes you want to hum it for hours. We have reproduced this wonderful little chart for you here, and have expanded the brass up to 8 voices (from the original 6), making it playable by a full big band line-up. We have written out BG's lines "as played" by the master, and have written out the original second chorus Piano and Tenor solos too, though your players can improvise their own if preferred. The reeds are scored for CAATT and the brass ranges are moderate too. Neat, crisp plunger work is required in the brass, to keep the backings clean and tight. This chart is highly recommended.
