Description:

Another Bill Finegan masterpiece, Tail End Charlie was made famous by Miller's Army Air Force Training Command Band. The 'Tail-end Charlie' was the rear gunner in a bomber - often the first line of defense -and probably the most exposed position of any crewmember. This mid-tempo swing chart has unison saxes carrying the theme, backed by muted brass figures, building into a key-change bridge to introduce the baritone solo. The whole number reaches a peak with a written-to sound-ad-lib trumpet solo, before the theme returns, repeating to a fade-out, (a well-tried Miller effect) with final tutti crescendo to end with.
