Description:

Tuxedo Junction -Gene Krupa. More 'Bluesey' than the Miller version, this arrangement from the Gene Krupa orchestra makes a refreshing addition to any library. The chart features some lovely Guitar and Alto solo cameos and a solo spot for Clarinet (1st Tenor), plus some flowing brass choruses. Whilst the Miller-style Trombone plunger figures are nowhere to be found, the brass sections do have the chance to wave their rubber near the end of the chart, and the Trombones round the piece off with pedal note doo-wops. The saxes are scored for 3 Altos & 2 Tenors, and 1st Tenor doubles Clarinet. The Guitar solos are cued onto the Piano part should you lack a Guitarist. The brass ranges are very moderate and we have graded the piece as Easy / Medium, as the Clarinet solo (as written) gets a bit busy in one bar, though your player can always improvise over the chords instead.
