Description:

This Dorsey classic is another great solo spot for Trombone. Based on a tune by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakoff, the original arrangement was by Tommy Dorsey himself. A well known piece, Song of India was originally scored for just 6 brass. We have augmented the chart to a full section of 8 brass. The Trombone and Trumpet solos are written out in full, though your 2nd Trumpet player can improvise a solo from the chords given. This arrangement sounds like the original article, and includes the Clarinets(Alto 2) scored in the intro and the close. All dynamics and articulations are given, and these are particularly important to give the chart its correct feel. We have rated this as a Medium difficulty chart, though the 1st Trombone does go to high C.
