Description:Frankie & Johnny is a lovely solo feature for Clarinet, Tenor and Trumpet. This particular version is as played by members of the Goodman orchestra and it bounces from start to finish. The opening chorus is sparse - just Clarinet & rhythm - before the chart lifts into full tutti at the first modulation. We have written out the Tenor & Trumpet solos in full, though your players can improvise their own from the chords too. The Clarinet part is written on Alto 1 and the other reeds are scored for ATTB.
