Trumpet: Db6, Trombone: F#4
This is a great Medium Swing chart with a ‘swingin’ melodic line, and plenty of open solo space for your outstanding soloists. Can be opened up to feature an extended drum solo. A very, very good chart to play!
Standard Big Band (5/5/4/4)
The recording of Lou’s Blues for you to listen to is recorded by the Louie Bellson Octet as a Big Band version of this tune was never recorded. This recording is very similar to the big band version, although not exactly the same. It will give you a very good idea of the style of the music, the tempo, and the articulation. Plus, you’ll be able to listen to outstanding soloists!
An Optional Soprano/Clarinet part.
