California Dreamin' - 7 Horns and Rhythm

This classic hit from the Mamas and the Papas is presented here in an all-instrumental arrangement for 7 Horns and Rhythm section. The tune gets passed around the horn section so everybody gets the melody at some point, and most players are featured to some degree. The flute solo from the original recording is rendered here as a sax soli that begins in unison and splits into dazzling harmony.

Difficulty: the horn parts are not excessively range taxing. This would make for a fun instrumental feature on a program with anywhere from young players to community groups who don’t have the complement of a full big band. A fun piece to play, and fun for audiences to hear again!
