Description:In many ways this Sy Oliver chart written for the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra was ahead of its time, with its floating tonality and dissonant voicings. It has an almost ethereal feel to it, with huge contrasts in dynamics throughout the chart. We have written out the original solos (Trombone - Dorsey and Trumpet - Elman), and have notated the drum part in full, with all the little licks and fills needed to recreate the original. The Trombone solo is also cross cued onto the 3rd Trumpet part, should your player not be able to reach a high C. There are no sax doubles and the chart has been re-scored to take it to 8 brass.
