Jule Styne/arr. Gordon Goodwin - Alfred Publishing Belwin Division
, In the style of Basie and Hefti, this Gordon Goodwin adaptation of the wonderful holiday classic is set in a medium swing style. Not a drum showcase, but the drummer has plenty of solo space beginning on brushes, then to sticks as the intensity rises. There is a flute part on second alto (can be omitted) and a percussion part for vibes. The optional solo space is for alto, tenor, trumpet, trombone, and the lead trumpet range is to written high E. A great sax section soli rounds out this excellent chart. This one is so nice, you'll want to play it year 'round! Highly recommended!
