Description:Written by Jimmy Mundy for the Benny Goodman Orchestra shortly after he joined BG as a staff arranger, Jam Session is an up-tempo swing chart with solo space for Tenor, Clarinet and Trumpet. The arrangement starts in two beat style for the first chorus, and then switches to four beat swing to the end of the piece. We have adapted this chart to 8 brass from the original 5, and because it is not a Clarinet feature we have scored the Saxes AAATT, with the 2nd Alto taking the Clarinet solo. All solos are fully transcribed, though your players can improvise from the chords provided.
