Description:Tain't No Use At All : Glenn Miller big band sheet music for jazz ensemble. Our chart has been transcribed from the fine Jerry Gray chart written for the Glenn Miller band. Originally scored for six brass, we have augmented it up to a full eight voices. The Alto and Trumpet solos are improvised from the chords provided. As with many Miller charts, much use is made of a repeating riff theme taken by the reeds. The structure of the chart is an eight measure intro, full chorus, eight measure bridge, three quarter chorus for solos, an unexpected half-step modulation to a four measure bridge, then a half-chorus re-statement of the theme to close. There are no sax doubles.
