Description:

The Hucklebuck : Tommy Dorsey big band vocal chart. Faithfully transcribed from the original Bill Finegan chart for Tommy Dorsey, this catchy and bouncy tune was lifted by the writers from Charlie Parker's "Now's the Time", so will be instantly recognisable by a lot of listeners. The chart features Trumpet 2, which doubles the melody at the start and rips a screaming solo at the end (originally played by Charlie Shavers, who also took the vocal). Your Alto 2 player has a short solo passage doubling Clarinet, but don't worry if your player doesn't double, as this little solo is an embellishment, and not crucial to the chart. The vocal chorus is in Eb and aside from Alto 2 there are no other sax doubles. The tempo is laid back, and should not be rushed. A great dance chart.
