Wrappin' It Up


Wrappin' It Up is a very rare chart from the Benny Goodman book. Like many of his earlier hits, is a Fletcher Henderson composition, and is up-tempo and delightfully bouncy. Great for the dancers. Goodman re-recorded this chart in 1951, and it is from this version that we have transribed our chart. The beat is infectious, the riffs are tight, and all of the solos are written out in full, though your players can improvise from the chords provided if you prefer. The reeds are scored for CAATT, with all saxes written to double Clarinets for a short 8 measure passage, though the Tenors can avoid the double and play 8v.a.if needs be. The Tenor solo is scored on both Tenor parts. Whilst theTrombone ranges are not too demanding (lead to Ab), both Trumpets 1 & 2 need to be able to hit high Eb.
