Description:

Here is Glenn Miller's version of Johnson Rag, transcribed from the original Bill Finegan chart with all of the solos (both Tenors, Trombone 1 and Trumpet 2) written out. This tune features many of Miller's trademarks, such as the steady build and overlayering of sections to increase the depth of sound and to establish the tune firmly in the mind, plenty of Trumpet plunger figures, sudden changes of dynamics and rich ensemble scoring. The brass ranges are generally moderate, though the Trombone solo does hit a high Db. We have scored this solo onto the 4th Trumpet part, should your player not feel comfortable with the range. There are no Sax doubles.
