Description:

Swingtime in the Rockies is a fast-paced (240 bpm) swing chart in riff style from the earlier days of the Goodman band. We have augmented the Brass from the original 5 to 8 voices to suit a standard 5444 big band line-up. The Reeds are scored for CAATT throughout, and the Goodman solos are written out in full too. Aside from the Clarinet, the only other solo is taken by Trumpet 2 and is written out "as played" by Harry James. This is not the easiest chart to play, as nimble fingers are needed to keep the chart tidy at this tempo.
