Description:

This song was written by Mel Powell when he was pianist with the Goodman orchestra, and it was a hit in 1942. Glenn Miller, whilst in charge of the US Army Air Force Training Command Band, used it as a vehicle for showing the Clarinet skills of Peanuts Hucko. It also fitted well into a series of numbers that were ‘patriotic’ and supported the war effort. Tunes such as Keep Em’ Flying, Tail End Charlie and Jeep Jockey Jump. This is a great punchy swing chart, and you will need a good Clarinet player to do it justice. Lead Alto doubles Clarinet, Baritone doubles Alto.
