Description:Originally written in 1915 for solo Piano, Hors D'Oeuvre became a huge hit for both Sid Phillips and Bert Ambrose. The chart was also revived by Billy May in his Time Life Swing Era recordings. This chart recaptures the mood of the British dance band era back in the 20's and 30's. You will need a Pianist with a good right hand. A bit of stride skill with the left would be useful too. The chart also features solos (all written out) for Alto 2, Trumpet 2, Clarinet (Alto 1) and Trombone 1. In the reeds, both Altos and Tenors are required to double Clarinet. If you are ever called to play a roaring 20's style number and are bored with the Charleston, this chart will have the dance floor filled with dancers in no time.
