Description:

Many big bands of the 30's & 40's performed novelty numbers, and most of them were very forgettable. However, some endured, simply because they were so well written and arranged. Kay Kyser's version of Pass That Peace Pipe is one of these. The arrangement was probably by George Dunning, and it is a beautiful piece of work. Whilst the chart was written for Female Vocal plus 4 piece backing (Gloria Wood & the Campus Kids) it will work with just a solo vocalist. Alto & Tenor saxes are called to double Clarinets in the intro, but we have printed these parts double sided, with a "no double" option, in case your players don't have Clarinets. This is a very rare chart from the heyday of the Kyser band and a fine addition to any library.
