- Alfred Publishing Belwin Division
Victor Lopez gets the jazz band into the Mardi Gras spirit with this swing chart geared for an energetic performance. Optional parts for clarinet and tuba are included for added flexibility, making this chart an even more authentic NOLA style. Lead trumpet range is to written B natural above the staff and the suggested tempo is brisk. Written or improv solo space is provided for alto 1 (or clarinet), trumpet 2, and trombone 1, plus some infectious drum cadence solos. Additional parts are included for optional expanded instrumentations. With clever interplay between the rhythm section and horn parts, this chart is edgy, infectious and hot!
