Description:Following many requests we are pleased to offer Lover's Leap. It is an up-tempo, bouncy swing chart from the postwar Les Brown orchestra featuring Alto, Piano and a cameo solo from Trumpet in the shout chorus. The band is tightly scored, and the chart needs to be played with great precision to achieve the required feel. We have written in all of the articulations on the band parts to help you achieve the right result. The sax solo is written out on Alto 1 and cross-cued on Alto 2 (both parts have the chords too), should you wish to feature your unsung player a bit. The Piano solo is written out in full though your player can always improvise from the chords, if preferred. The final Trumpet flourish is scored onto the 3rd part. There are no sax doubles.
