Description:

Here is our transcription of the Bob Crosby bands' theme tune, Summertime. Featuring solos by Trumpet and Tenor, this wonderfully rich and moody chart rarely strays from Gershwins' haunting melody and ethereal harmonic structure. Of particular note is the sixteen measure passage where the melody is taken in unison by Clarinet (Alto 1) and Tenor 1, supported by the other 3 reeeds and spread-voiced Trombone figures. Unison Trumpets take the final chorus and the chart rounds off with a series of harmonically shifting figues below a chromatically descending Trumpet line, all led by unison Clarinet & Tenor sustaining the fimal melodic note. This chart is an absolute classic of its time and deserves a place in the library of any band.
