Description:The Fox is a real beauty of a swing-dance chart, perfect for the Jitterbug and Lindy dance crowd. This tune has a totally infectious bounce to it, and swings like crazy from start to finish. The arrangement is nearly all ensemble work, aside from a screaming 2nd Trumpet cameo solo, and there is a lot of plunger work in the Brass, with the sections answering each other behind the Sax lines, so it will have a lot of visual appeal in performance too. The Fox is not a hard chart to play, though it relies on your players being relaxed into the feel and not pushing the beat. The drum part is fully notated with the necessary licks, and the Trumpet solo can be played as written or from the chords provided. A rare and elegant swing chart from the Ray Anthony orchestra.
