Description:

One of Artie Shaw's most endearing charts, Softly as a Morning Sunrise was scored as a mid-tempo swing chart for the Shaw band by Jerry Gray, later of Miller fame. We have transcibed the chart and scored it for a full band line-up of 5 reeds & 8 brass. The Saxes are written for Solo Clarinet, 2 Altos and 2 Tenors. The 2nd Tenor takes the solo (written out) and Shaw's solos are also notated in full. Alto 1 and Tenor 1 double Clarinets, and there is an optional Clarinet double on the Alto 2 part. The Trombone solo, also written, is on the 1st part. A good concert piece or equally suitable for dancing, Morning Sunrise will make a fine addition to any library. The brass ranges are moderate and the only tricky bit is the final Clarinet run-up which goes to a high A.
