Description:Here is the classic version of St. Louis Blues as performed by Glenn Miller and the US Army Air Force band. The original arrangement was co-written by Jerry Gray, Ray McKinley and Perry Burgett. Our transcription features the Trumpet and Tenor solos as originally played by Bobby Nichols and Vince Carbone. The fill-in alto solos (by Hank Freeman) are there too, as is a fully notated Drum part, exactly as played by Ray McKinley. This chart is written for a 5444 big band line-up, and a full 4 piece Trumpet section is required for your band is to reproduce this definitive Miller version. There are no sax doubles.
