Description:Summit Ridge Drive was one of Artie Shaw's hits with his Gramercy Five outfit, comprising Clarinet, Trumpet and Rhythm section. We have taken the original 6 piece arrangement and expanded it up to full big band, whilst keeping the length and structure of the original piece. The chart features solos for Clarinet, Trumpet, Piano (Harpsichord) and Bass, all of which are written out in full. If your band uses keyboards instead of a real Piano, the part should be played using a Harpsichord but sounds fine on Piano. We have also included an extra Trumpet part in the arrangement, a transcription of the original Gramercy Five Trumpet line which, when used with just a Clarinet and the Rhythm parts, allows you to perform the Gramercy Five version. The reeds are written CAATT, with all saxes doubling Clarinets.
