Description:

Goodbye - Benny Goodman. This was Benny Goodman's closing theme. A slow, hauntingly beautiful composition from Gordon Jenkins, rich in musical colour and tonality and a fine testament to Benny. We have faithfully reproduced the original here, though have expanded the brass to a full 4/4 section to suit a standard big band line-up. The chart features Clarinet and 2nd Trumpet, with some cameo spots for Baritone & Guitar and plenty of flowing Piano runs. The reeds are scored for Clarinet, Alto, 2 Tenors and Baritone. Not a difficult chart to play, but plenty of dynamic discipline is required to make it sound right.
