Description:

This arrangement was written by Ben Homer for the Les Brown Orchestra, and is a quirky and fun chart to play. Everything is as per the original recording - the dixie trio; the piano solo written out; the tenor and trumpet solos are written as played. Abe Most's soaring 32 bar Clarinet improvisation is alto transcribed note for note. The Altos and Tenors double Clarinets, and Baritone doubles Alto. The Tenor 2 Calrinet Double is not vital, and can be played on Tenor an octave up from written. The main Clarinet work is assigned to Alto 2 and the Trumpet solo is written on 1st Trumpet, but cued onto 3rd and 4th too, in case you wish to let them take a rare solo spot.
