Title:Strike Up the Band (Swing Quickstep)
Duration:2 mins 20 secs
Trumpets 1-4:D6, C6, C6, C6
Trombones 1-4:Bb4, Bb4, E4, D4
Arranged by:Myles Collins
Description:A classic tune from the brothers Gershwin, we have arranged Strike Up the Band as a swing quickstep which makes an excellent set opener and is very suitable for dancing. At two minutes twenty it is not unneccessarily long, yet still provides sufficient time for an ad-lib solo Tenor spot written on the 1st part and cued onto the 2nd. No sax doubles. The mp3 is courtesy of the Strayhorns big band.
