Description:Here is a great take on that well known Scottish traditional ditty "Loch Lomond". This chart is transcribed from the version done by members of the Benny Goodman Orchestra in 1959 (Crown records CLP-5090) and features solo spots for Clarinet, Trumpet and Alto. The original solos are written out in full, though your players can improvise their own from the chords provided. We have augmented the brass to the full 8 voices and have written the Clarinet lines on the Alto 1 part. Saxes are scored for A/C, A, T, T, B and aside from Alto 1 there are no other Clarinet doubles. The chart is very straighforward, though Sax intonation needs to be watched in the unison first chorus. We have graded this chart Easy / Medium rather than Easy only because the lead Trumpet needs to reach top D and lead Trombone is to Ab.
