Description:

Hindustan - Ted Heath. A fabulous arrangement of this timeless classic, as played by the Ted Heath band of 1947. This chart is a real mood lifter; it just so bright and bouncy. Your drummer sets this mood right from the word go, and the band sets up the swing with a series of rising chromatic punches in the intro. There is an improvised Trumpet 2 solo which needs to really scream over the band to be effective, and the reeds are Miller-voiced for their solis in the second half of the arrangement, so Alto1 doubles Clarinet and Baritone doubles Alto. The tempo of the chart is set at 240 beats per minute, and it needs to be around this speed to make the chart work, so the band must have nimble fingers and chops.
