Description:

Originally entitled "That's Where I Came In" and first recorded on 8th December 1941, "Keep 'Em Flying" became a regularly played chart of the USAAF Band under Miller's direction. Taken at such a rapid tempo this is not an easy chart to play. It requires great discipline and musical dexterity from the band to keep things tight, and really nimble fingers and chops for the Tenor and Trumpet (Billy May) solos. The Piano solo is played ad-lib from the chords. Alto 1 takes the Clarinet double for the last chorus solo, and Baritone doubles Alto at this point too. If your band likes a challenge, here it is.
