Description:Written by Benny Goodman himself, the Kingdom of Swing is an up-tempo riff chart that features great sectional alternation to keep what is a fairly simple melodic idea pulsing and building in intensity throughout the chart. Aside from Clarinet and Piano solos this chart is sectional work all the way. Goodman's solo is written out in full, the Piano solo is improvised from the chords and we have cued these chords onto the Clarinet part too, in case you wish to feature your Clarinet player more. The chart is scored for a full 5444 big band line-up and the reeds are scored CAATT, with no sax doubles.
