Description:Our version of Lemon Drop is very closely based around the original Gil Fuller chart for the Herman band. The form and structure is the same, though we have replaced the scat band vocal lines with unison saxes instead. There is solo space for Baritone, Trombone, Trumpet, Piano and Alto, and all solos are to be improvised from the chords provided. Please be advised that this is a difficult chart, not least because of the tempo being so fast. The brass is written high too, with all Trumpets needing to hit top C and Trombones 1-3 reaching Bb. The 4th Trombone is a Bass. We have provided the audio to Herman's version so that you can appreciate the structure of the arrangement. There are no sax doubles.
