Description:

This is pure Woody Herman, and a transcription of the original Nat Pierce chart. The Jazz Me Blues is an old dixieland tune of the 1920's, and this arrangement lifts it into a new sphere altogether. Written in the 'Four Brothers' style, it is scored for three tenors, baritone and clarinet (though we include duplicate parts for alto sax, making it playable by a standard section line-up), with solo's for clarinet, tenor and trombone. With a nice arranging twist there is even a cameo passage of dixieland built into the final chorus, just to remind us where the tune originally came from. A cracking swing chart.
