Description:

Many bands played Jersey Bounce, and the two most remembered are those from the Miller and Goodman Orchestras. This is the Benny Goodman version, meticulously transcribed by Alan Glasscock. For us it is the more interesting version of the two. Mel Powells' harmonics and phrasing in the Piano solo (fully written out, including the super-fast runs) was really ahead of its time. The other three solo spots are all here too, written for Tenor 1, Trombone 2 and of course Solo Clarinet. In this recorded version Goodman had the luxury of a complete sax section of AATTB, plus himself. Therefore our chart offers the same. We recognise that not many bands have six saxes, but rest assured that the chart works equally well played with CAATT. Lastly, the trick with this chart is not to play it too fast!! Enjoy.
