Description:This is an up-tempo swingy version of What Is This Thing Called Love, the original Shaw arrangement being attributed to Jerry Gray. The first half chorus has a 2-beat feel, moving to full swing for the sax middle eight, and staying there for the rest of the chart. We have adapted the arrangement up to full 8 brass from the original 6. The solos are for Clarinet, Trumpet and Trombone and all three are written out in full, though your players can improvise their own solos if preferred. The reeds are scored for CAATT and all saxes are required to double Clarinet for an 8 measure passage.
