Description:A ground breaking chart from the Tommy Dorsey / Sy Oliver stable, Quiet Please was a huge hit in its day, and the first major success for Buddy Rich in his stay with the Dorsey band. This chart is a big drum feature and we have reproduced Rich's original playing on the drum part. The other two major solos - Clarinet (on Alto 1 part) and Trumpet - are left to your players to improvise from the chords provided. This chart is hard, and will require a good band with great soloists to pull it off. However, if your band has the players to cope with it, the result will be a show stopper.
