Description:

When Buddha Smiles was originally recorded by Goodman in 1935 when his band had a 5 piece brass section. We have augmented the chart up to a full 5444 line-up and have retained the original CAATT reed section. This high energy, up tempo swing chart has solos for Clarinet and Tenor (written on the 2nd Tenor part) and all the solos are written out "as played", though your players can improvise their own from the chords provided. The arrangement is classic Goodman, with some great sectional interplay and roaring ensemble passages. A fine chart for the swing dancers too. There are no sax doubles.
