Description:

Moonglow - Artie Shaw. Here is our transcription of Artie Shaw's sublime take on Moonglow. We have adapted the original concept by removing the string lines and re-scoring them into the band, making the chart playable by a standard 5444 line-up. As a reference for this transcription we have used not just the Shaw recording, but also the Les Brown chart which was essentially a copy of the AS chart. In addition to the Clarinet lead, the arrangement features solos for Piano and Trombone 2. The Piano solo is taken from the Brown version and the Trombone solo from the Shaw chart. The reeds are scored for AATTB, with saxes 1-4 doubling Clarinet and Baritone on Bass Clarinet. However, the sax parts are printed double sided with a "no double" option on the reverse, though the Clarinet lead is taken by Alto 1 in both versions. The Clarinet solo lines are scored "as played" by Shaw.
